There is a new coordinator and cook at the Imperial Community Center. With one existing paid staff member, that brings the paid employees to three.
Leanna Maucher began working as the center’s coordinator Monday.
Joan Corey began working as head cook and janitor the end of July.
Becky Berry continues as bookkeeper.
Board President Bill Sharp said the two newly-hired individuals replace Cassie Carman and Danielle Salazar.
Maucher, who grew up in Hayes County, has ties to Imperial, as she worked for nine years for the city and school system.
Corey has worked at Smokin’ Leroys and owned a cafe in Enders.
“I think it’ll make for more efficient operation,” Sharp said of the changes.
Maucher said her goal is to “get more people in to eat lunch.” She said that at $4 for those over 60 and $5 for those under age 60, “for the amount of food you can’t go anywhere else.”
She noted that the center also provides meals to go and for home delivery.
