Land o' Lakes Community Services - January News
Meals On Wheels: A service for seniors 55+, persons recovering from illness/surgery and/or persons with physical disabilities. Individuals, family, community agencies or professionals can make referrals for meals on wheels. Participation does not necessarily mean that a person is incapable of preparing his/her own meal; it might just be a great alternative to have someone else do the cooking for a change. Frozen meals are also available. For more information, call Marlene at 336-8934 or Charlene in Denbigh at 333-5216.
Interagency: North Lennox & Addington Interagency meetings are held at Land o’ Lakes Community Services on the first Wednesday of each month at noon. Membership is comprised of direct service staff from various agencies in the local community. The goal of the interagency group is to share resources between agencies, helping to identify available services and staff with particular expertise. The sharing of information and resources makes referral between agencies much easier.
Community Bus: The community bus is open to everyone and travels once each month to urban centres for shopping and recreation. Bus trips in the past have included going to Belleville, Napanee, Kingston, Perth, Smith Falls, and occasionally Pembroke or Renfrew. There are also occasional special events trips. On Thursday February 2nd, the bus will be going to Belleville. An increase in the number of people interested in using the service could result in trips every two weeks. Twenty people are required for the bus to run. The cost for the bus trip is $10/person.Tuesday Night Euchre: Every Tuesday night is Euchre night at the Northbrook Lions’ Hall and the turnout has been very good. Doors open at 7 pm and Euchre begins at 7:30. Everyone is welcome. For just $2 you will have a social night out and a light lunch.
If interested in any of the above programs call LOLCS at 336-8934. (For the Community Bus or Euchre you can also call Peggy at 336-8736)
