From the Director – September 2021

I cannot believe that September is upon us.  The fall brings worries about the renewed spread of the coronavirus.  Please be safe.  My son’s girlfriend, fully vaccinated, has tested positive for the virus.  Her symptoms are not as bad as if she were not vaccinated.  Just a warning of what could happen.   We are continuing to ask for contact information and temps as you enter the building. Please wear a mask at all times that you are in the building unless you are seated at a table and eating.  We hope that this will keep everyone safe while we restart activities.   This weekend the county risk factor went up.  If it were to go up further we will need  to stop the congregate lunches and possibly shut down in person activities again.  We will try our best to contact you if this is happening.

This December the center will celebrate our 60th anniversary.  We will have an in-person gathering next summer to celebrate.  We want to do something to celebrate.  I would like help to plan the event.  Please let me know if you can help out.

The center is working on a partnership with Olli.  This will give us an opportunity to view fabulous lectures that are offered by the group.  There will be more to come in the coming weeks.

The board meets every first Wednesday in the month at the center at 6:30pm.  It is an open meeting with time at the beginning for public comment.  Feel free to join us.  I try to publish the agenda ahead of time on the website.
