Burnsville Senior Center
(Nov. 12, 2020) #30
Good morning, this is Michele Starkey and I am the Coordinator of the Burnsville Senior Center and this is my Thursday morning update call email format.
We got an update from the Governor yesterday and we are still here to talk about it. So far so good. I have to say that considering we have been open for a little over 4 months – I am really proud of our operation. Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and patience as we all go through this together…well not too together, socially distanced I mean!
So, this all means we still have a volunteer here answering the phone, Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm. If there is anything you need from us here at the Burnsville Senior Center we are a phone call away.
The Monthly Dining Club (MDC) cards are here. They are $25 again this year & good each month for 138 different businesses and restaurants south of the river.
Those of you with Medicare or new to Medicare know that this is Open Enrollment. If you are looking to explore your health insurance options, you can contact the MN Senior Linkage Line at 1-800-333-2433 to get an appointment to speak with a trained volunteer. These are not brokers or agents but trained to assist you with your health insurance choices.
Remember it’s flu season – so get your flu shot. And free COVID-19 test are available by calling 612-223-8838 for an appt.
Be A Santa to A Senior is still in the works. This program is designed for seniors who are isolated during the holidays. We are still taking nominations for those who might need a little holiday cheer this year. We will ask about gift suggestions to personalize their goodies.
The One91 Community Pantry will be available on Nov. 17 from 3 – 4:30 pm and on the West or Pleasant side of the building. And the Fare For All Thanksgiving Holiday Pack will be available on Wed, Nov. 18 from 2 – 5pm.
Next week, I will have a special announcement about a special meal deal we will make available for purchase in December. This will be a pre-cooked, pre-ordered, pre-paid meal available to the public…pre-holiday. Now that’s a mouthful!
Remember to keep that mouth covered, wear your mask - we want you to stay safe, stay well and stay connected.
