The Winlock Senior Center put on a fundraiser on March 4 to help support the Lewis County seniors.
The potato bar is always a big hit and it was no different on this night. All throughout the evening, many community members came to fill their stomachs with some baked potatoes, salad, and dessert at the end. A colorful arrangement of cakes and pies was on the dessert menu.
All of the senior centers in Lewis County pays an annual fee of $20,000 to go into salaries, maintenance, internet/telephone services, and other additional services to help the seniors as well as the other community members of Lewis County.
Advisory Board President Jan Kramer said, "We really try to reach out to the community too. It's not just for the seniors, it is for everybody."
The next fundraiser the senior center will be having is a rummage sale on March 19 from 9 am until 3 pm.
They will be taking contributions and donations from the community members. The focus point on the rummage sale will be to sell household and gardening tools, but clothing items will also be accepted. Old electronics like old telephones, old TVs, and old computers and computer monitors will not be allowed due to the lack of interest in them. Books, household decorations, and gardening tools are wanted and needed.
