In addition to sharing a tasty meal and making new friendships, you may have your blood pressure and blood sugar checked by the health nurse for a small donation (suggested amount: $1). We have entertainment, such as music, poems, jokes, etc. Occasionally, we receive information that could save a life. It is good for your health to have friends, so come and have a good time. Please bring a covered dish to share. (Entrance and parking lot are at the rear of the building.)
