From the desk of the Director…
I cannot believe it is almost Spring! Although, we can be grateful for the mild winter we have had this year. Just a few updates:
- Again I want to thank everyone who supported our Annual Mail Appeal. As you can see we are still listing the many donations we received and will continue to do so through the next few months. Again thank you so much for your support!
- Also we wanted to remind everyone that if you need a ride on our bus, you only need to call one hour before your pick-up.
- Last, I wanted to let everyone know, that even though Lynn and I now have offices upstairs, we are still always available to you. You want to talk to us, just see us or whatever. Just go to the front desk and ask them to give us a call. We will come right down. Having our offices upstairs allowed us to create more room for activities but we are sorry if you feel that because of that we are not accessible to you. We are always here for you and as they say “just give us a call.”
Have a great month!
