Luncheon serves up fun at senior center

The Alexandria Senior Center held its Mother Daughter Luncheon on Saturday, April 30. About 90 women of all ages attended.

After guests enjoyed a lunch of croissant sandwiches and sides, Chef Janet prepared a special cake for dessert.

Ladies who attended shared in fellowship, laughter and good fun. They were even waited upon by courteous gentlemen servers who smiled widely as they handed out plates of food.

Entertainment was provided by Roger and Doris Thompson, and Helen Kuester spoke and read a special poem.
