Lunch with DALLAS is quite interesting in that each weekday some hundreds of SENIOR CENTERS State-wide provide sit-down lunch meals to those 62 and older.
Supported by one third of revenue received from West Virginia LOTTERY, individuals are asked to DONATE as they can afford...many participating at no charge. Meal nutrition is set at not less than 1,500 calories per meal. As a Visitor, my donation is suggested to be $4.00 per meal.
The HURRICANE SENIOR CENTER prepares and delivers nearly 50 MEALS ON WHEELS in addition to some 50 seniors who "eat in."
CHEF's CHOICE selection for Wednesday - yesterday - included Wieners and Baked Beans, Potatoes, Cauliflower. Apple Pie, Corn Bread, Coffee , Tea and milk.
A Weekly Menu is printed in advance of the daily selections.

DALLAS' home viewed from the garages (3 separate garage buildings). My job has been to operate the gas engine WEED EATER. Taking two days to figure out how to re-fill the cutting cord, I worked some many hours trimming grass surrounding each shrub, tree. fence line, as well as the home itself. We also keep up the next door home and some State property adjacent to DALLAS' home.
Will complete the entire job - for the first time - this afternoon.
