Michele's Moments

There are SO many different things to be considered with regard to reopening the Center. Do we check temperatures upon arrival? Do we require masks? Do we provide masks or ask participants to? Gloves or no gloves? Should you be expected to wash your hands before, during and after? Can we play cards and respect 6 foot social distancing? Will we have cookies and/or coffee? Will we accept used greeting cards in the future? What will future bake sales look like? Believe me, there are many more questions than answers at this time but lots to consider.  With these needed conversations, I am going to continue to do this E-Newsletter but, on an every other week basis. So the next issue will be May 22.

Food needs have been very popular this last week. The One91 Community Pantry continues to grow in popularity. 
Just pull up in your car and receive the items available on that day. 
Upcoming locations and dates are:
Hidden Valley - May 12 from 2–3:30 pm 
Diamondhead Education Center – May 19 from 3-4:30 pm           
Sky Oaks – May 21 from 2-3:30 pm                                                      


The Burnsville YMCA has partnered with Loaves and Fishes and they have food available daily from noon – 1pm. And, if you need assistance with groceries or other items that need to be picked up, just call the Center and we can assist with that.

We are still hoping to have the Shred Event on Tuesday, June 9 from 10 am - noon in the lower level parking lot. Double check with us the week before. Remember its $5 per car with 1 - 3 bags/boxes, $10 for 4 - 8 bags/boxes and $50 with 9+ bags/boxes.

To any and all moms out there - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Please enjoy your weekend and remember to: Stay home, stay safe, stay well and stay connected.

Grab the little ones, have them dress as their favorite superhero and join in on the fun - Saturday, May 16 from 11 am - 1 pm at the Burnsville Ice Center parking lot located at 251 Civic Center Parkway across from City Hall. Non-perishable food items will be collected and donated to those in need.      


A little giggle...
