Lunch with Community Helpers at the Community Center in Burney

Celebrating “The Week of the Young Child,” First Five Shasta and Bright Futures hosted a wonderful “Lunch with Community Helpers” at the Intermountain Community Center in Burney beginning at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18.

Children and community helpers share lunch at the Tri County Community Center

According to Bright Futures Family Advocate Shaylene Herndon, 89 children and 62 adults attended and had an opportunity to meet community helpers from the Burney Fire Protection District, Shasta County Sheriff’s Department, CalFire, California Highway Patrol, the US Forest Service, Burney Disposal, and Dr. Patterson from Eye Care Associates.

The program was fun and educational. Each agency gave a brief explanation of the work that they do in terms that the young children could enjoy and understand.

Afterwards, everybody shared a delicious lunch including barbecued burgers, potato salad, baked beans, au gratin potatoes and cake provided by Diane Murphy and her crew at Shasta Senior Nutrition Center. Burney Fire Chief Monty Keady pitched in to help barbecue and serve the burgers.

St. Patrick’s Day at the community center

The Burney Community Center had a wonderful corned beef and cabbage senior lunch on St. Patrick’s Day. Linda and I arrived just after noon and there was only one spot left in the parking lot. Inside, the line was still moving and the tables were almost all full.

St. Patrick’s Day decorations livened up the hall. People were wearing green hats and shamrocks apparel to suit the occasion. There was a table of baked goods for sale. Ron was playing music on the piano.

In past years, when I played at the Mayfly Pub in Fall River I used to play some Irish tunes such “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” or the “Black Velvet Band.”

After shooting a few pictures and greeting Bill Campbell who was busy making sure everyone had everything they needed, I got into line and was served a delicious meal featuring corned beef, cabbage, and potato.

The meal was delicious and we had a lively conversation about the 2016 Presidential Election. My position is that I will not vote for Donald Trump and I will not vote for or support any candidate for any office who supports Donald Trump.

Altogether, it was a jolly good time. I am very grateful for all the programs and activities that they host. Bill Campbell does a great job. If you have an idea for an activity, he is very open to anything that will benefit the community.

Linda and I enjoy going for the senior lunches. They are held at noon Monday through Friday. The meal, which costs $3 for seniors, is always nutritious and well balanced. and generally quite tasty.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all.
