From the desk of the Director…
Happy New Year! Here is to 2019! I wanted to give you a few updates of the “goings on” here at the Center.
- Thank you to everyone who has sent in their donations for our annual Mail Appeal. Your support for our programs and services are invaluable to RCAC.
- Make sure you check out the newsletter for some new classes and events starting in January.
- We are asking that no one comes behind the front desk, unless you are volunteering as a receptionist that day. This area is for staff only, if you need something please ask.
- Last, remember as the days get colder to bring a sweater with you if you get cold easily. We keep the building at 70 degrees but sometimes it can be a little drafty.
Have a great January!
