Here it is, June 1, and there are scheduled events galore!
We were invited to the Senior Center to talk to the Golden Age Club about Aberdeen, and it was a real pleasure to get back to talk to such a large gathering of folks interested in the community around them.
The gift pen with our name and the Aberdeen Golden Age Club inscribed will be very useful, and we thank them so much. The staff also provided us with their June list of events that is filled with exciting happenings.
