Since moving to the Lutheran Church, attendance now at 15. Ray hopes that, eventually, FI seniors will be able to participate in activities at the GH Senior Center when available and in the meantime, will see if coordinated lunches and activities with the FIAC and UCC are of interest.  Or build lunches at the local churches, and then add bingo, and lunches, and then work on Transport needs as they develop.
