We have launched our new Website www.russell55plusclub.com
this site will contain all the information about our club, how to get in touch, and all the updates. You can check back everyday.
The sun is shining many days and I have been out working in my garden. I was able to pick up soil and mulch and I have growing my vegetables inside. There are some amazing local companies selling flowers, vegetable and mulch that are offering online order and curbside pick up.
It has taken me a few days and many phone calls to update our benefits, services and covid information lists. I will be updating some of the shops, and services, I have some additions to our services as well as some new information about Covid 19 in our area and benefits available to seniors.
There are very few benefits being made directly to seniors. We must continue to press the government. Our group and town are doing a great job of taking care of ourselves.
We now have a volunteer group available to work for us. If you require help with yard work, delivery of items or would just like to talk about things you can call us or email us, and we can link you up with a volunteer.
If you require a meal or help with services, please feel free to call or email. We can also arrange for cloth masks if needed.
