From the desk of the Director…
The first thing I would like to update you on is the status of the Center reopening. At the time we printed the newsletter Allegheny County is about to move to the Yellow Status. For the Center to open we must move to the Green Status. With this in mind, we are unsure of the timeline for this to occur. Please know that we are working with the Allegheny Area Office on Aging and other county senior centers to come up with a plan from reopening. Until then know we miss you all very much. If you are in need of anything, please call the Center at anytime . We are here to help. There are staff members in the office to answers phones
Monday-Friday 8:00 am-1:00 pm. Please feel free to call us even if you just want someone to talk to. We understand this is a difficult time and want you to know we are here to listen.
Here are a few updates:
- As many of you know Lynn Verratti was planning on retiring. She has retired and her last day was May 22, 2020. I know many of you would like to say good bye and wish her luck on her next chapter. If you would like to send her a card, please send it to the Center and we will make sure she gets it. We also hope she will come visit once the Center reopens.
- Included in the newsletter is a list of volunteers who have given time to the Center between March 2019-Febraury 2020. We want to thank everyone on this list for helping out at the Center. Without you we would be lost.
- Also included is the final names of those who gave to our annual mail appeal. Thank you to everyone who donated. This money is used to benefit the program and services here at the Center.
We are reprinting both of these lists due to an issue with the printing of our newsletter in May.
Please stay home, stay safe and stay healthy! ~Stefanie
