The pinochle tournament held on Wednesday, December 12 resulted in the following winners: Annabelle Walker (1059), Mary Lea Myers (1049) and Joretta Sawyer (873). We played five games with two tables and had Christmas treats during the break.
We appreciate Heather from Preferred Hospice for sharing safe minimum cooking temperatures with us. She cautioned that every household should have a meat thermometer and that you can’t tell by just looking at food whether it is safely cooked. Foods left out over a two-hour period begins to get bacteria, so be careful seniors, this holiday season. She also handed out a cookbook to everyone present that has some delicious recipes in it.
Until next week, have a good one!
