From Your President

4th Qtr 2017

Autumn is here with its pleasant weather and beautiful foliage. Although we would not like to think about it -- winter is just around the corner. When you are searching for a warm, comfortable place with interesting friends and great activities, the Community Center is the place for you! Check  your newsletter and the notices posted at the Center for the many activities and delicious lunches provided for your enjoyment.


Have you thought about the vital component of a good Center?  Our Center is very fortunate to have more than 80 volunteers who in the past 10 years have helped our Center grow in many ways.  Volunteers provide many services which we could not otherwise afford. Volunteering is not only important to the Center but also to those of us who volunteer. Volunteering is a way of contributing to our communities and each other.  Consider joining our volunteer staff. You can opt to select your own time and days or you can even serve as a substitute. Involvement is the key to the Center’s continued success.

The Pennsylvania Department on Aging awarded a grant to our Center to provide new carpeting in the Legacy Room, lobby, and hall, a new floor covering in the basement room, a stair glide to the basement, and new sofas for the lobby.  Work on these projects has begun.  Thanks to Elaine and Bob Frank and Carol and Rod Shultz for the gigantic job of packing up the Thrift Store in preparation for its new floor.  Please be patient when these projects begin in the next several weeks as we may experience some inconvenience.


Thanks to Debbie and Peggy for a successful Volunteer Appreciation Lunch.  We appreciate Debbie’s efforts in providing the special informative and interesting afternoon programs.  We appreciate Peggy’s efforts in providing enjoyable lunches and programs.  Check the Newsletter and the announcements in the Lobby for the special programs which are not only enjoyable and interesting but also provide opportunities to socialize.


This is your Center dedicated to meet your needs!  We always strive to improve our programs and activities.  Only through working together can we be even stronger.  Please share your suggestions with Debbie, Peggy, or me. We will do our best to follow your suggestions!


The Holiday Season is soon approaching!  Our pre-holiday celebration will begin with a Thanksgiving dinner dance on Friday, November 17 and will be followed by activities such as a holiday luncheon concert.  Join your friends for great food and great fellowship!  Celebrate!


It’s a bit early, but Best Wishes to you and your families for a Happy Thanksgiving, a joyous and blessed Holiday Season followed by a healthy, prosperous New Year!
