It is time for us to enjoy an indoor picnic with hot dogs and ice cream. Barbara Kaiser has arranged for a representative from Amy’s Ice Cream to talk on the history of Amy’s. This hometown corporation has a history of ice cream excellence. They have created over 350 different flavors but their most famous flavor is Mexican Vanilla. You will be treated to a sample of this delicious dessert. But before dessert you get to enjoy hot dogs and casseroles by our creative AARP members. Please bring a casserole, side dish, or dessert to share with the group. If you have a favorite recipe, share your secret ingredients with us. Recipes from the past include “Red Velvet Cake, Tomato soup spice cake, Copper Penny Carrots, German Potato Salad. What do you have in your recipe box? The hot dogs are provided courtesy of AARP #2426 and cooked by Pat Thomas. Pat will also have a display of old fashion cookbooks for you to view. There is something comforting about reading a cookbook. If you grew up on a farm, no part of the pig was ever wasted.

On Thursday, July 21, the five Austin Area AARP Chapters will host their annual AARP Day. This is a time when members of the chapters and guests gather to enjoy each other’s company, learn about new products and services for seniors in the community, and win door prizes. Our own Caryn Gulas and her colleague, Libby Valenti will provide a hands-on workshop demonstrating inexpensive ways to make your home fit for your senior years. Also present will be a representative from Meals on Wheels and More, who will tell about available free programs for eligible seniors to make home improvements to enable them to stay in their homes as they age.
