RCSC Updates for June 5, 2015

Rim Country Senior/Community Center

This metal art work of the Phoenix rising from the ashes hangs in the Senior Center with the names of those individuals and businesses who helped or contributed to the rebuilding of the RCSC after it was completely burned down in the 2002 Rodeo-Chedisky Fire.

The Rim Country Senior-Community Center is getting into full swing as our seasonal residents return along with the beautiful warm weather. Yoga class starts up on Wednesdays at 1:00pm. Addie’s Thrift Shop is open Monday through Saturdays now from 9 to 1.

The Cabin Bar & Grill was the Restaurant Partner on May 27 and had a great turn out.

Welcome Kim Wright who just started as the new office manager for the center. She and husband J.J. recently moved here from Bulverde, TX (near San Antonio) to be closer to family. J.J. is a retired Marine (thank you for your service!) and Kim has spent many years in the accounting field.

Wednesday May 27, Raynita Carlson from The Cabin Bar & Grill provided a delicious lunch as part of the Restaurant Partners program. She brought Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti with garlic bread. Raynita also donated three $10 gift certificates for The Cabin to the lunch time raffle.

A big thank you goes out to the Restaurant Partners who donate their food for the noon time meal to the RCSC diners as well as the Meals on Wheels recipients.

Just a note: anyone can come in and enjoy the meals at the RCSC. It’s a great deal and really great tasting food. Adults under 60 the donation is $7, 60+ is $6 and children under 10 are $4. For this you get salad bar, bread, the main course with vegetable and a drink. On special occasions there are fun raffles and desserts.

Note from the Editor: Do you have any knowledge on the history of the Senior Center?
The Mogollon Rim News would like to compile memories from those who have spent time over the years at the Senior Center. Please, please, please be a part of this project? Rest assured you won’t be put on the spot, and you can remain anonymous, if you wish. Please write down what you know or would like to share and leave it at the RCSC office or you can contact me at 928-535-4106. Thank you!
