Spice & Fun at the Cayucos Seniors' October '08 Potluck Luncheon

On my second visit to the Cayucos Seniors' potluck luncheon this month, I found myself inducted as an honorary member of the group. The most senior of all told me they love to have me join them, but wondered about my age. It turned out that I would not qualify, but they decided to honor me instead, and made feel me even more welcome.

The Cayucos Seniors' potluck is held every second Wednesday of the month, at the Cayucos Veterans' Hall at the Pier. On such Wednesdays, the seniors bring a dish of any speciality to add to what their senior counterparts had cooked at the Cayucos Veterans Hall.  They might also bring their own chinaware and cutlery, if desired. Wine was offered at very nominal prices.  Other beverages were free.  There's usually a good spread of salads, meats and desserts.  The senior volunteers also know how to cook up a dish. For the October 7th luncheon, the theme was German, so we had sausages and sauerkraut.  Many members worked hard to serve their fellow seniors.  Several cooked and cleaned in the kitchen while others cleared dishes, and ran the program.

 

Band performance after lunch

After lunch, we were treated to a series of folk songs, waltzes, and ballads from the quartet who sang, wooed, boogied and played for the audience. Many swayed to the music. A few couples stood up to dance.  I was thrilled to see the seniors hum and smile to the tunes.  Let it be said that they did know how to have a good time.

You should have seen them in action!

I met new friends, like the Simpsons below, who just celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary. They were a very sweet couple.

The luncheon ended with a 50/50 drawing and series of drawing for door prizes.  My friend, Bob Pollock won over $100 in the 50/50 drawing.

I left the seniors' potluck feeling humbled.
