From the desk of the Director…
Here are just a few updates.
- As many of you know, in early August we had our plumbing fixed at a cost of over $7,000. As part of insuring that we no longer have issues we have replaced the paper towels in the bathrooms with hand dryers. We are also asking everyone to please make sure you do not flush anything down the toilet . We have placed small garbage cans by the toilet for anything you need to throw away.
- Our Annual Thomas Angerman Golf Outing was held on August 25th. Due to the timing of the newsletter a final report of the event will not be available till our October issue. At this time we want to thank everyone that supported the event!
- Check out the front of our newsletter! We are having a Tea Party on October 21st. This event will feature a fashion show, Chinese auction items and wonderful food. Get your tickets early!
Have a great month!
