Welcome to the merry month of May. Hope you all have plans to enjoy our upcoming summer months.

The garden group is busy getting their fingers dirty and sprucing up our patio area. Check it out when you have a chance. Thanks to the group for taking on this task for all of us to enjoy.

I want to share one of the goals of  the Senior Center Board of Directors with our membership. We all want the Center to be an open and inviting location for our members to enjoy the many activities we have to offer. At some point, you may want to bring a visiting friend or family member with you to enjoy an activity. We welcome you to do just that. As a courtesy, please stop by the office to introduce your friend and have then welcomed.

Many thanks to the volunteers for their help with our Big Bingo event on April 21st. It was a successful and a fun time. We had an outstanding response to our request for baskets for the raffle. Our members and local businesses donated a beautiful array of baskets.

Unfortunately, we have had some of our members experience a medical emergency while attending an activity. To guide the response in such a situation, there are new signs in each of the activity rooms with directions on how to respond. Please review the newsletter for more information. Hopefully, this is a rare occurrence.

Many upcoming special presentations so check the calendar and newsletter.  Hope to see you around the Center.

 Until next time,

Sharon Brzoska, President
