The Eads Senior Citizens who came to the monthly lunch thoroughly enjoyed the beef brisket that Rod and Dana Brown donated to the group. Darryl Stolzenberger smoked the brisket for Gail to serve. She also made warm wheat rolls and baked cheese hash brown casserole. Joyce Berry gave us an update on the future Senior Center across the street which is now two vacant gutted brick buildings. She said that Cindy McCloud is working on some new grants.
