From Your President
May / June 2017
Finally, the spring weather has arrived! I hope you are enjoying it!
Our Center has been awarded a competitive grant of $50,084 by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging. These funds will provide us with a stair glide to the basement area; new floor coverings for the Legacy Room, lobby, and hall to special rooms; floor covering for the basement room; and sofas for the lobby. We are appreciative of the efforts of Debbie Scollon, Pat Guth, and Consultant Steven Forbus for the preparation of the grant proposal. I will assume responsibility for the supervision of the projects. We will need everyone’s cooperation as we proceed to get the work done!
We recently enjoyed several special events. Thanks to Ted Heimbach for assuming the responsibility for the Holiday Cash Raffle, which was very successful and fun. The drawing event was exciting, and the food was great. Thanks to Debbie and Peggy for their hard work on the St. Patrick’s Luncheon and Bag Piper Jim Rembisz. If you missed any of these programs, be sure to participate in the next one. We appreciate the efforts of Debbie and Peggy in providing the leadership for the many activities for us to enjoy.
From time to time we allow members to borrow items, which we ask to be returned. If you have borrowed any items, please make an effort to return them as soon as possible.
Have you seen the donation bottle in the lobby? We need your help to fund future repairs! We are asking you to donate your loose change to help us fill the bottle. We can put your loose pocket change to good use!
Enjoy a wonderful spring!
