The Hospitality Committee will be hosting “Warm Up With Chili” on Tuesday, March 8, at the Ramada. Social hour will begin at 4:30, and we will begin serving dinner at 5:00. Cost will be $8.00 per person. We can accept cash or checks.

Dinner includes your choices of 10 – 12 different chilis made by our team, including a vegetarian chili, Keto friendly chili, beef chili, white chili, chicken chili and other wonderful choices. Also included will be cornbread, with a gluten free choice available, and a brownie. There will be multiple toppings for your chili, including Fritos, sour cream, cheese, jalapeno peppers and onions.

Complimentary beverages are wine, beer, margaritas, soda and water. 

Please join us in gathering for a fun evening where you can meet new neighbors, renew friendships. All you have to do is show up and enjoy the evening and let us serve you! We provide everything.

Please consider bringing a non-perishable donation for the Food Shelf box at the Ramada!

Missing Vacuum Attachment

From Vivian Vascellaro

  • This is probably a shot in the dark, but I'm trying to help two people at once. One is a friend who sold a Kirby vacuum to one of our EE residents, and the other is the vacuum purchaser in EE who is missing a vacuum attachment. She doesn't have the lady's name. All she know is that she has a caregiver. My friend, who lives in Continental Vistas, discovered that there was an additional tube like attachment that was not taken at the time of purchase, and she wanted to get it to her via yours truly. If you know who in EE purchased the vacuum, please let me know, Vivian Vascellaro, 919-274-5364, Regalo.

Need to Get Rid of Some Oranges?

From Bob Jacobs
