ALAMOSA — Things are sure exciting these days. We are in the process of installing new carpet and laminate flooring.
\Needless to say, there has been some disruption in our daily activities but we’re thankful for everyone’s patience. It is going to be beautiful.
For those of you planning to attend the baked potato potluck on Friday please call ahead at 719-589-3277 as we may need to postpone it due to the flooring upgrade.
The kitchen staff from South Central are having a great time preparing a fun day for everyone on November 1. They are celebrating the traditional Dia de los Muertos with DJ Efrem Ortiz and Shariffa, a Belly Dance artist.
The fun begins at 11 a.m. Frito Pie is on the menu. Make sure to sign up at least a week ahead of time if you would like to eat lunch!
