Joe Taylor, a retired actor, moves into a prison-turned-elder-care facility shortly after the demise of Medicare and election of Dick Cheney as President. He discovers a community of loveable, irascible inmates hell-bent on bucking the dehumanizing system in which they have landed. Together, this band of aging misfits rediscovers purpose and dignity.

President's Message

Well ladies , time does fly!  Can you believe we are halfway through the NFC year already?!

December is a very busy time of year for many, but we hope you will be able to find time to join us for the December Holiday Luncheon.  We will have entertainment and it is always a memorable time for everyone.  

Thank you all so much for your generous outpouring of donations for Present Age Miniseries.  The girls are very appreciative.  

As we gather together with family and friends during this holiday season let’s not forget those who might be alone and take a little time to spend with them.  With that in mind, if you have time to read a book this month and have never read the book “A Cup of Christmas Tea”, I would recommend it. 

Wishing you all joyous and happy holidays!
