We offer activities designed to appeal to all people from children to seniors and we welcome everyone regardless of where they may live. We do not have membership and charge no dues. We are most well-known for the delicious, freshly cooked breakfasts served on the first Sunday of each month and the additional breakfasts and dinners served throughout the year. We are also designated as an emergency shelter in the event of a natural disaster or local disruption . We maintain a supply of emergency blankets and other basic supplies. Our facility is available to host private or community events. In addition, we maintain a gift shop offering unique, donated items at very low prices. See the list of our services below. Our board of directors are members of our local community who are volunteering their time and effort to provide a pleasant and enjoyable experience to everyone.
