From the desk of the Director…
I wanted to give you a few updates:
- Just a reminder to sign up for Better Choices, Better Health. This is a wonderful program that has benefited many adults. The workshops are informative, fun, and interactive. By joining the workshop, you’ll be together with people with similar conditions and concerns as you, and you will also make new friends.
- 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 till we can thank everyone. 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.
Have a great month!
