3.01. Congregate Dining: Liz reported that senior dining serves an average of 100-150 meals per month. The top three meals for attendance since the last meeting were BBQ ribs with 32 diners, fried chicken with 26 diners and Salisbury steak with 25 diners. Three meal dates needed to be cancelled in July and two meals in August. The group discussed the issue of diners preferring white meat fried chicken when there is only dark meat left, and how to handle special requests. The group also discussed how beneficial it is to announce upcoming meals during senior dining, so people sign up ahead of time and do not forget.
3.02. Upcoming Senior Programs: Liz shared all of the upcoming events the City of Rogers has planned. The group contributed ideas that could be used to enhance some of the already planned events.
3.03. Planning Committee: The group discussed plans for the new Great Decisions group and ideas for Pat’s recognition lunch.
4.01. Rogers-Hassan Senior Friendship Group Update: The centennial cookbooks are bringing in a profit now but there are still plenty to sell. The Cub brat stand in August brought in $150 and $50 of that was donated by Cub themselves. The volunteers no longer need to grill the food themselves, making it easier on the volunteers. The new treasurer, Deb, said the position is going well, as she is still transitioning and learning from Pat.
