It was an honor to host an appreciation luncheon to thank all of the seniors in the 17th District. They are often the backbones of our families and leading, positive examples within the community. It was only right that we show them how much we care with a good home-style meal from Josephine’s Cooking. This was also a great opportunity to help out this great establishment owned by Mother Josephine Wade. The restaurant was recently a victim of thousands of dollars in copper theft. It was a pleasure to support the restaurant while showing our appreciation for our elders. Thanks to all who came.
