Holy Family Senior Center is busy Monday through Friday with volunteers wearing masks and maintaining a safe distance. All lunches are served in togo containers for elders to take home as they drive in to pick them up. The Center remains closed to all activities. ECCC, announces that Nancy Sewell is the latest addition to the efforts to keep hot lunch available to all seniors in need. Nancy was born and raised in the wonderful city of Apalachicola. She says, “Cooking and baking are two of the many gifts that God has blessed me with. I started cooking at the age of 13 years old. I started baking at the age of 15 years old. My cooking and baking skills come from always being in the kitchen watching and helping my granny, mother, and father prepare meals. I am known in town and the surrounding counties for my cakes and pies, especially my pound cakes: ~Cakes by Nan~ ‘the cakes like grandmother used to make!’ When I was offered the position to cook for ECCC, I gladly accepted the positon. Cooking is my passion! It’s therapeutic! I worked many years at Bay City Lodge Restaurant, as a short order cook. I am always preparing large meals for my family, community events, and my church events. This position fits nicely with who I am and with my lifestyle. I love to help others, especially the elderly. There’s a quote that I live by when it comes to a job: ‘working hard for something you don’t care about is called stress, working hard for something you love is called passion.’ I plan to use my passion, skills, strength, and experience to make a significant contribution to ECCC.”
