March 2020 – From the Director

The 2020 Census is nearly here!  There are 3 ways to fill out the census, internet, phone or paper.  We are here to help. No one will be coming to your door until May and only if you don’t fill out the survey before then.   Census workers will never ask for Social Security number or any financial information. More information is available at the center.

Are you caring for someone that is living with dementia?  The Area Agency on Aging 1-B is presenting a free Caregiver Survival seminar on March 12 at the center.  Consider registering for this valuable workshop.

The Center can use your help.  We are working hard to raise the finances needed to support and expand our programming.  Do you like to help organize fundraisers or special events?  Do you like to make phone calls to potential donors that will help at an event?   Do you like to help facilitate these events like setting up, cleaning up and helping serve at the event?  Give your contact information and interest to Monica or Nancy.

I am looking for a few good people to help with our Intergenerational Project.  I would like to form an advisory group that would meet with younger people to look at how we can become a hub of intergenerational activities.  Please let me know if you are interested.

In our backyard there is a daycare center that is run by the YMCA.  They would love to have older adults volunteer to come and read or play with the children.  I was at the daycare one day to talk with the director.  The children were very engaging.  While I waited for the director they showed me what they were doing and included me in their activities.  It was so much fun.  If your interested in volunteering follow this link:  https://www.research.net/r/AAYMCAVolunteer
