We invite all our readers to let us know about any projects our eastern Washington community is doing to help each other during the pandemic crisis. Stay strong!

The HUB Senior Center: The HUB Board of Directors decided this morning to close the facility until April 13th in an attempt to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They are making every effort possible to ensure the continued health of our seniors, while still trying to attend to our needs. Meals will continue to be provided on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but on a take- out basis only. It is still necessary to call (675-1479) or email (ccscthehub@gmail.com) by 10:00 a.m. Monday to request a meal for either day. For the period of the closure, this will apply to everyone; the "frequent flyer" list will not be in force. The meals will be brought to you in your car as you pass through the portico in front of the building, and payment will be accepted there as well. No other activities or rentals will take place during this time in an effort to keep the building as sanitized as is possible. The situation will be re-visited at the April 10th BOD meeting. This was a most difficult decision to make, but was based on the best current information from the Washington State Department of Health and the North East Tri-County Health District. We are saddened at the prospect of missing out on our camaraderie for the next month, but keeping everyone well is a greater obligation which the Board takes very seriously. Soon this will all be past us, and we'll be able to gather together again to share our stories!  The CCSC Board of Directors-----

The gift cards can be used for your own family or you can continue to pay it forward by giving one to a neighbor or a friend to help them out during this time. We also want to assure our customers that we have implemented even more strict cleaning and sanitizing procedures and as much "touchless" service as possible. We have also put into place strict health protocols for our employees as well as any delivery people servicing our restaurant.
