Services are provided 5 days a week to senior adults 60 years of age and older who desire the opportunity to gain daily social interaction through community involvement. This group meets 8am - Noon, Mondays - Friday at the Teacher’s Cottage in Valdese.<br><br>For more information about our Nutrition Programs, please contact Angie Ross, Nutrition Coordinator at (828) 430-4147 or by email <a href="mailto:angie.ross@burkenc.org"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0066cc">angie.ross@burkenc.org</font></span></a><span aria-hidden="true"></span></p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;"> </p>
