The Meeting of the Minds series of lectures continues at Orcas Senior Center. This season, in partnership with The Friends of Moran, we will continue a series of presentations about our island home. The next presentation, “The Stone Tower” with Rolf Eriksen, will be on Dec. 18 at 1 p.m.

Learn about the fascinating history of the iconic Mt. Constitution Stone Tower. It holds amazing stories. Why is it there? How has it been maintained? Why do people love it so much? Eriksen, tour leader, has been a dedicated Tower Expert for many years. Join us for this and other informational presentations at Orcas Senior Center. The other winter Meeting of the Mind presentations include “Bats” on Jan. 15 and “Newts” on Feb. 19.

Orcas Senior Center will be the Orcas Food Co-Op Community Hero for December. Shoppers will have the opportunity to round up their purchases at the register throughout the entire month. In addition, on Thursday, Dec. 19 three percent of the gross receipts will be donated to Orcas Senior Center. All proceeds will support the nutrition program. The nutrition program provides congregate meals at Orcas Senior Center and hot, delivered meals to homebound seniors three times a week.
