Volunteers Add Spring Color to OASIS Senior Center


 Thanks to about 30 hardworking volunteers, the west side of the Oasis Senior Center on Dyer Street in Old Orcutt received a landscaping makeover on Saturday, March 6.    A cadre of students from St. Joseph High and Orcutt Academy Schools and lots of the senior center regulars combined their efforts to weed, trim plants, paint and even relocate a huge storage shed.  

Volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints upgraded the landscaping.  

The Saturday work project was organized by OASIS programs organizer Amy Lammert.   She says she is so grateful for the incredible support.    OASIS Executive Director Michelle Southwick expressed her thanks to volunteers who pulled out weeds, painted steps and created a new home for the storage shed, “I was amazed at how much was accomplished in under three hours. Orcutt volunteers turned out in force and our senior center is so much improved.”
