Many thanks to the Clampers and all of you who supported our very successful Golden Age Center/ Clampers McBubba Breakfast fundraiser last Friday.  It does take an entire community…and not just to raise children, but to take care of the future of our seniors as well!

The Golden Age Center is open to the public. Regular hours are Monday through Thursday 9am – 3pm, with a full course meal served promptly at noon. You do not have to be a Senior to enjoy our complete home-style cooked meals! Go to our website www.goldenagecenter.org.  Like us on Facebook.  Email your ideas and tell us how we are doing:  goldenagecentertrinity@gmail.

Our Blue Barn Boutique is filled with the best deals in town …now we are already BACK TO SCHOOL!   Regular Blue Barn hours are M-F 10-4 and Sat. 10-2. Now you can use your debit/credit cards for purchases. Volunteers to help sort and display always welcome. Looking for regular volunteers to be trained.  Talk with  Kit in the office.
