Douglas County Presents ‘The Grand Lunch’ Series

(Douglas County, Ore.) Douglas County Commissioners Chris Boice, Tim Freeman, and Tom Kress, along with the Douglas County Senior Services Director Jeanne Wright, and staff with Douglas County Senior Services are excited to present “The Grand Lunch,” an intergenerational lunch series being offered this summer at Douglas County’s Bistro Sixty Senior Dining Site in Yoncalla.  As a part of the special lunch series, kids are encouraged to invite their favorite grandparent - aka Grandpa, Gigi, Papa, Grammy, Gramps, Grandma, Pops, Abuela, Abuelo or even their favorite Aunt, Uncle, neighbor, or an adopted Grandparent over the age of sixty to share a meal while enjoying games, music and photo booth fun together.

 

The Grand Lunches will be offered once a month on Friday, June 21, Friday, July 19 and Friday, August 16, 2024, starting at 11:30 am at the Yoncalla Community Center located at 400 Main Street in Yoncalla.  Reservations are requested and kids must be accompanied by a Senior age 60+.  Call Douglas County Senior Services at (541) 440-3677 to reserve your spot. 

 

Our Douglas County Bistro Sixty Senior Dining Sites prepare meals on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at our seven rural dining site locations in Glide, Glendale, Reedsport, Riddle, Sutherlin, Winston, and Yoncalla. Senior Services staff know there are others in our communities who could benefit from their Douglas County Meals on Wheels delivery program and/or meals at their Douglas County Bistro Sixty Senior Dining Sites. If residents know of friends or family who are unable to drive, need assistance with daily living activities, would benefit from hot meal delivery, or need other assistance, they are encouraged to call the Aging & Disabilities Resource Connection in the Douglas County Senior Services Department at (541) 440-3677 or by sending an email to adrc@douglascountyor.gov

 

Our seven rural Douglas County Bistro Sixty Senior Dining Sites and Douglas County Meals on Wheels programs are managed by Douglas County Senior Services Department staff but are successful because of the dedication of volunteers. To get involved with Douglas County Bistro Sixty Senior Dining Sites and Douglas County Meals on Wheels programs or to learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Amanda Hilburn at amanda.hilburn@douglascountyor.gov or (541) 440-4245 or Kellie Redifer at kellie.redifer@douglascountyor.gov or (541) 464-3893 in our Douglas County Senior Services Department
