    The 27th annual Day of Caring will be Saturday, August 24, 2019.  Teams of volunteers will do outside chores including cutting grass, weeding, pruning, window washing, cleaning gutters, and small painting jobs. Volunteers will not be able to do any inside work and ask that homeowners furnish tools and materials needed for the job.  You must be a homeowner to participate & must be present the day the volunteers come.  If you are interested in having volunteers help at your home, please register by calling Council on Aging,

  • We will be attending the Barn Dinner Theater in Greensboro for the A Red Plaid Shirt play.  Two friends fill the void left by retirement in different ways; Marty wants to explore the open road on a Harley while Fred decides to pay more attention to his health, inventing many new ailments along the way. With “subtle redirection” from their wives and some creative problem solving (which may or may not include a homemade coffin) they find the right track… eventually. 

    September 3 at 10:00 am - 6:30 pm at Barn Dinner Theater
