Saturday, May 30, 5-8 p.m., Kosciusko Community Senior Services had a fundraiser at the Penguin Point restaurant on SR 15 in Warsaw. With the sales that were received, Penguin Point donated 10 percent to KCSS.
I met with David Neff who is executive director. He stated that the donations help seniors from all over the county to receive mobile meals.
Donations also go towards transportation services. Transportation takes people to medical appointments or maybe they prefer to be taken for a hair appointment.
If you are interested in obtaining a ride, you can call (574) 267-2012 and ask for Carol Kreis.
KCSS has many areas where they help our seniors in our community. There is the senior center at 800 N. Park Ave., Warsaw.
Here you can share conversation with others, make new friends, play bingo and enjoy a lunch together. If you would like to call and find more information you can call (574) 268-2132.
While visiting with the seniors that came into Penguin Point to share a meal with friends, I was able to visit with some of them. I heard many good things being said.
Charity Davis stated the work she does for KCCS is very rewarding. Tom Williams reported he is a KCSS van driver. He said he doesn’t see it as a job at all. He enjoys being there for those needing assistance.
Greta Wolff said she loves to have fun, laugh and joke and act silly. Purnell Bell exclaimed he thinks all the people are extremely nice. He tries to go every day. Connie Keho said she loves everything about KCSS.
These are great comments I heard. It was so nice to see smiles, and hear laughter coming from the entire dining room. If you haven’t visited the Senior Service, please do. There is definitely something for everyone.
Thank you Penguin Point for being a part of these great Senior’s lives.
