From the desk of the Director…
- A new program on Diabetes Prevention has been made available to RCAC. This program is a year long with meetings 22-26 times per year. If you are interested please let Lynn know.
- Please remember to sign up for lunch at least a day in advance. We order meals for the next day by 12:00 pm. If you need a meal please call before that deadline. We do not order extra meals, so if you do not sign up we cannot guarantee you a meal.
