A new series of programs has begun at the Alfred Senior Lunch Site, welcoming District 5 Legislator Jan Burdick as its first speaker. Wanting to bring in programs that were relevant and of interest to the Alfred senior community, site manager Amie Acton decided to focus on the two things the group most enjoys: chatting and local news. This led to the idea to organize monthly programs to bring in local elected officials and community leaders.

At least not by my standards, but maybe it's a generational thing and maybe today's parents do not have time, as with so many other things, to bake cookies for or with their children.
