As the herbs grow you will learn how to use them while preparing your meals. Also, a trip to the Farmers Market might be offered where participants will learn about fruits and vegetable from other countries, and how to prepare them. Classes in June will be 1st, 15th, & 29th.

PROBUS Invites, June 21 (Everyone is welcome)
Bob Ferguson, King County Council member will be talking about the Veterans and Human Services Levy. King County voters approved the Veterans and Human Services Levy in 2005. The Levy invests over $13 milling per year for six years in cost-effective proven programs. Half of the funds are dedicated to veterans and their families and the other half serve working families and vulnerable residents including people with disabilities and seniors. Levy funds served over 50,000 diverse clients through 2009. The contribution of a typical homeowner is less than $15 a year.

Joel Estey, Regional Veterans Service manager for King County, will be sharing information and pictures from the Veterans Memorial Museum in Chehalis, WA. The museum features 9,000 square feet main gallery with 85 display cases and hundreds of displays honoring our veterans. Their mission is to honor, and perpetuate the memory of the service men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces down through the history of our country during peacetime or war.

New take out meal service available at the Shoreline-LFP Senior Center
During the week you can purchase a meal at the Senior Center for lunch, and take home a meal if there is food remaining after lunch is served. However on weekends, if you do not cook or you do not have the time, you do not eat balanced meals. In fact you eat whatever there is around the house. So, to help you out, a new scratch meal service is being offered on Fridays for those of you who may need meals for the week-end. Meals can be purchased for yourself, parents, friends or neighbors. We will need your orders by Wednesday, and your meals will be ready for pick up on Friday. They will come in containers that are both freezable and microwaveable. Call or come by the Senior Center to find out what the Friday menu will be each week. The price for these meals will be $4.00 each.
