From the Director

Dear Friends,

This is the time of year that we have so much to look forward to at the Center!  The Community BUNCO Bash, Ice Cream Social and Senior Follies are sure to be fun events in August.  We also look forward to September as we celebrate National Senior Center month with special programming and events.

Once again we are beginning to make plans for the upcoming year; I need your input.   Shortly, you will be receiving surveys which help us make improvements as well as plan for the future.  I appreciate your responsiveness to these surveys throughout the years and I believe that because of you and your suggestions we just keep getting better and better.  I also conduct a forum once a quarter to give you the opportunity to meet with me and discuss your ideas, concerns or suggestions.

On page 6 of the newsletter, find out how we are gearing up for our annual Tulsa Area United Way campaign.  This 4-month campaign has the potential to be a lot of fun!  For me, this is a time of year that I have the opportunity  to speak to large and small local businesses to let their employees know about the activities and programs we offer.  Internally, our goal is to raise $5,000!  We do this with a variety of activities affording you the opportunity to contribute.  The staff also make pledges and donations annually.

The Board of Directors voted in regular session on July 18, 2017, to create a non-resident membership fee of $30.00 per year.  This new membership fee will be only for those who live outside the 74011, 74012, 74013 and 74014 zip codes.  Those in the named zip codes will remain $20.00 per year.  The effective date for this update is September 1st.  September renewal notices will reflect this change.

Help us be good stewards.  In an effort to conserve energy, please turn off lights in rooms when they are not in use.
