“Thank you” for your hard work and for helping make the LCO Elder Center Christmas Dinner special.


Handmade blankets, pin cousins and leg warmers were donated from the Primrose Knotty Ladies in Dane County and were distributed to some the LCO Elder Center Congregate participants and to the January bingo player participants. “Thank you” Ladies for making December a special month for our Elder Community.


In September, the Burke Lutheran Church Quilting Group along with Linda Klinger also donated quilts to the LCO Elder Center which were distributed as Christmas gifts to some of the local Elders and to the LCO Elders that reside at the local Nursing Homes. Linda Hanson donated clothing items that were also distributed to our LCO Elder Community members as they were displayed on our community free table.


The LCO Elder Center would like the Burke Church, Linda Klinger and Linda Hanson to know that this was very appreciated nice thing and it helped a lot of our LCO Elder Community Members. Thank you, Dave Coon, LCO Community member for making this possible and for delivering the items to our Center. Thank you, Danielle Bensen for delivering the Christmas gift blankets to our Elders in the Nursing Homes.
