Kind words from our community

“I came with trepidation. I was welcomed with open arms. Such friendliness from generous, caring ladies with whom I have laughed and shared good conversations!”

“During a break in employment, I started Tai Chi and enjoyed the benefits of this ancient exercise, only to discover a very unknown skill I didn’t even know I had in cookery! From Plot To Plate is homework that uses our volunteers as ‘taste testers’ at our weekly meetings. No complaints yet – incredible!!!”
