SFCSC Diners’ club enjoy a Thanksgiving lunch at the Harrowsmith Free Methodist church on Oct. 8

Members of the Southern Frontenac Community Services Corporation’s Rural VISIONS Centre Diners’ Club feasted on a full course turkey luncheon with all the fixings at the Harrowsmith Free Methodist church on Oct. 8. Diners were invited to bring art and craft objects they created and a display was set up for the diners to peruse and chat about.

Most lunches are catered by PineRidge BBQ and are followed by some live entertainment.

Kim McCaugherty is the long-term services coordinator at SFCSC and she was excited to see so many diners at Thursday's meal. "The lunches are a great way for seniors to get out and socialize while enjoying a meal and we really try to go out of our way to make sure our clients get the service that they deserve.”

Diners receive a weekly phone call to remind them of the lunches that take place alternately in Harrowsmith, Verona and Inverary. Transportation services can be provided for those who require it.

The $11 lunches are available to seniors over 55 years of age and to adults of all ages who have a physical disability.

A group of diners at Thursday’s meal said, “It’s a time when when you can learn a lot of interesting facts and a time when all of the gossip goes around.”

Kim definitely feels that the more diners, the merrier. Anyone interested in joining the SFCSC Diners’ club can contact Kim McCaugherty at 613-376-6477 or visit the Rural VISIONS Centre website at www. rural visions.org.
