When you read the McKinleyville Senior Center column in today’s paper, you may scratch your head and wonder why Belva Hanger is getting her feet wet and learning new things about the center, being that Belva served a long stint as the center’s director before her recent retirement.
It turns out the column was written by the center’s new director, Kathie Hammer, not Belva.
Kathie is so new to the center that she’s currently using Belva’s email address, hence the confusion.
But no worries. Today the seniors enjoyed a corned beef and cabbage feed, so all is well.
