A Message From Your President

September / October 2018

Hi everyone!   I hope you’re ready for Fall! We need a break after the hot and rainy summer.

The Center’s been busy with many classes and activities. We’ve had many new members these past few months. I hope you welcome these members as they become oriented to the Center. Over the last two months we’ve had our annual picnic, presentations on King Tut, and the Roaring 20’s era, the Red Cross held a blood drive, we were involved with a successful car show at Pennridge High School, and sold root beer floats again at Landis’, among other activities.

In September and October we have GrubStake tickets for sale, and we’re getting ready for the Penny Party (October 7) and the annual Holiday Cash Raffle (November 18). Grand View Hospital with be here on September 18 for blood pressure screenings and another screening on October 16. Grand View will also be here for a Lunch & Learn on September 25.

As mentioned many times, for our daily operation we have volunteers who make events happen. We are fortunate to have all of them, and to show our appreciation, we will have our Volunteer Luncheon on September 19 (by invitation only).

We continue to have work done around the building, which costs money, but keeps our building up to code. We are also working with three landscaping companies who bid on general landscaping by the sign and flagpole out front to create a more inviting entrance, and adding trees around the back part of the parking lot. We will soon be choosing the company and the phase of the bid to complete, possibly this year. Still, our funds will most likely allow us to do these items in phases. Landscaping may also be enhanced around the building itself, to possibly be included as another phase.  

Don’t forget to sign-in with Copilot every time you come into the Center. We need accurate daily totals! Total counts are used by county and state officials to determine the usage of the centers, and when money is available, how much the centers can receive based on these numbers.

Two last mentions: if you’d like to play table tennis some morning, let me know - I’ll be there to play you (no scorekeeping, though - just a friendly time!). And the Holiday Cash Raffle tickets are now on sale! See the receptionist or me to buy yours - there are only 250 for sale, so get yours early.

I hope to see you at our upcoming Fall events!


     - Ted Heimbach
