LYNDEN — Cathi LeCocq, just retired as manager of the Lynden Senior/Community Center, will make volunteering at an upcoming event “my last hurrah,” she said.
 
Picnic with a Purpose happens at the Lynden center, 401 Grover St., from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25. It is a drive-through box lunch and resource goodie bag event in the parking lot for seniors for a suggested donation of $5, all of which goes to the local center.
 
“I will be volunteering that day to help out and also give me a chance to do some masked and distanced goodbyes to people as they drive up,” said LeCocq, whose last day officially on the job was Aug. 14, after 10 years in Lynden.
