|Maple Shade: As Martindale would say, “come on down” for a good meal, more|
To the Editor:
This message is for the senior citizens in Maple Shade and close by towns. We all know that the Township and School District budgets are not being met so you can be sure they are going to up our taxes to bail them out. I wish there was someone we seniors could tax to pay our bills to BAIL US OUT! The only way we can survive is to cut our food budget. All our other bills are standard and will not go down. So all you seniors, come on down to the Senior Luncheon in Merchantville. You will receive a nutritious, hot, delicious meal every day, Monday through Friday served at noon. I am going to post a menu on the bulletin boards at the ACME and Smith Bros. Drug Store, so check them out and give us a call for more information at 856-663-6374.
We have a lot of other goodies too like Bingo, card games and a Flea Market once a month that offers bargains cheap. Also, there are plenty of reading materials and tapes and DVDs to borrow for free. Best of all, is the camaraderie. Being with people our own age is good to reminisce about old times and share all our aches and pains, which seniors like to do.
I have been going there for 10 years now and it is the highlight of my day.
So don’t sit at home and worry about where your next meal will come from. And, as an added bonus, there is no cooking or dishes to wash and you can go home and take a nap. The Merchantville Senior Center is located at Somerset and Greenleigh Court in Merchantville. Try it, you may like it.
We look forward to meeting you and the cost is only a donation of $1.50.
