Here we have it…May is upon us with all kinds of activity in and around Black River Good Neighbor Services.
A very important fundraising event is coming up: Spring Rummage Sale. This two-day sale, May 12 & May 13, from 10 AM – 4 PM takes place at Fletcher Farm in Ludlow. It’s a huge undertaking, bringing hundreds of shoppers to grab those “can’t live without” bargains. There really is something for everyone, so come on down! Proceeds benefit our food and financial assistance programs.
Our bi-monthly Community Lunches have proven to be wildly popular. The meals are offered on the first and third Thursdays of each month and are served promptly at noon in the Ludlow Community Center Cafeteria, located next to the Thrift Store. Bingo follows the first Thursday meal and a lively event follows the third Thursday meal. (Think Line Dancing!) This has become a wonderful social event for folks, especially those who may not get out too much, and it’s also the best deal of all because the meals are always FREE!
We continue to offer a monthly Memory Café on the second Thursday of each month from 11 AM – 1 PM at the Ludlow Community Center Cafeteria. This is a support group especially for caregivers and their loved ones living with dementia. It includes games, music, snacks, and is free of charge. For more information, please contact Joan at 802-228-4145.
Please do keep in mind that Black River Good Neighbor Services food shelf is available five days a week, Monday-Friday from 10 AM – 3 PM. Food orders are scheduled by phone at 802-228-3663 at a mutually convenient time for pickup.
Our thrift store is bustling with activity, open from Monday-Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM. We are always needing all kinds of housewares, bedding, toys, books, shoes. Please call with any questions.
