“We’re planning a spectacular barbecue,” says Bennie Owens who is busy making plans for the event which helps finance the senior center’s activities.  Chicken, links, and ribs will be served with baked beans, salad and dessert on Saturday, June 6 from 10 am to 6pm at the South Berkeley Senior Center at 2939 Ellis Street in Berkeley at Ashby.  “The cost for dinner ranges from $10 for chicken to $12 for ribs, or we’ll be serving combos for $14 and $16, or a slab of ribs for $23.,” reports Owens.  “We’ll have music and activities, and it all goes for a very good cause.”
“This annual event welcomes senior citizens within the community to socialize and build friendships while dining on good food,” says Shellie Hill-Williams, Senior Service Aide at the center.
“The mission of the City of Berkeley Division on Aging is dedicated to promoting a dignified healthful quality of life for older adults by advocating for vital services.  It is an accessible and trusted community resource,” according to the Mission statement of the City of Berkeley.
