Life After 50 ... Digital Cookbook

on October 22, 2019 - 6:35pm
Executive Director
Next week, I’m going to try something new and I want to give the community a chance to help their local senior centers. My plan is to create a digital cookbook.
Sweets for the Sweet, will be the title of “Volume Number One.” I am soliciting recipes, and in an ideal situation, a sweet story about how it has played a role in your life. We will sell copies of Sweets for the Sweet for just $2.
I know I have many recipes in word documents. I find them helpful because I NEVER lose them.

Jean Michael Fuselier began a new journey, unexpectedly on October 18, 2019.

Michael, as he was known to just about all, came running impatiently into this world in Asheville, NC on June 11, 1987. He must have been in a rush to meet his parent’s Robert (Bob) and Susie Fuselier and his big sister Jennifer.

Michael started his life of traveling and service early on when he went with his family to Honduras where they lived in an orphanage. Shortly after returning from this journey Michael became a big brother to the new addition, Bobby.
