Who says there’s no free lunch?

The Gold Country Community Center was popular on July 10. Our dining room was filled with young and old, enjoying the air conditioning, conversations, and, of course, Mindy’s delicious homemade ice cream! We had a great turnout, and raised $4,000 in raffle donations for the rent.

You may have heard about our new lease at the fairgrounds, and our rent fund- raiser? You know, the one where we’re pitting our board members against each other to raise $2,500 each? Well, we’re in full swing, and the fur is flying!

We had such fun with that event and raffle, we’re offering another raffle through July. The winner gets a free lunch at our center! But wait – there’s more! The winner chooses up to 50 friends, co-workers or club members to share that free lunch! That’s right – free lunch for all 50 of you! We have a different menu daily, offering fresh, homemade, nutritious meals. The winner chooses the menu they like, and bring their group that day. And let us know, so we can plan for 50 extra eaters!

You can check out the menus online at http://www.goldcountrycenter.org, and browse through all the other classes, activities and services we offer. We’re also collecting a survey for the next few weeks, to find out what other activities you would like.

The center will temporarily close at the end of July, while our building is used for the fair. We’ll reopen in mid-August, resuming daily meals and our regular classes. We’ll also be getting ready for upcoming events including an evening bistro, a yard sale, our Sixth Grade Challenge and more. Big thanks to the donors and volunteers of our Gold Country Community Center! You can buy a raffle ticket from any of our board members, or by calling the center at 273-4961.
