From the Director

Dear Friends,

I am so proud and excited to share with you, that the Broken Arrow Senior Center received the Arrowhead Business Award “Non-Profit of the Year” during the recent  BA Chamber  Annual Awards Banquet.   The event was hosted by the Chamber to celebrate the achievements in our community.  During the event, businesses and individuals were honored for their service and commitment to their businesses and to Broken Arrow.   We are honored to be the recipient of the Non-Profit of the Year award and look forward to continuing our work bringing activities and programming to you, our members!  We appreciate those of you who wrote letters of support.

The Center’s continued success depends upon the support of partnerships developed in our community.  Last year we started a Corporate Sponsorship Program which provides companies a way to support our mission and have an ongoing presence here.  Help me welcome and thank Floral Haven Funeral Home & Cemetery and Hillcrest South for their commitment to us as 2018 Advocate Sponsors.  We appreciate their support!

The second Health & Wellness Seminar was well attended.  The topic was heart attack education.  Look for details in June for the next seminar which will address joint pain.  These seminars are offered in partnership with Hillcrest South.

Plans are underway for the 28th Annual Senior Resource & Health Fair.  Our Presenting Sponsor this year is Prairie House Assisted Living & Memory Care.  We also welcome our Platinum Sponsors – Cedarhurst Senior Living, City of Broken Arrow, Floral Haven Funeral Home & Cemetery,  Harmon Insurance, Hillcrest South, Humana, LIFE Senior Services, Rotary Club of Broken Arrow and Values Magazine.

Once again we are partnering with Allegiant Precast to hold a raffle for a storm shelter.  As the shelter is donated, all monies received from the sale of these raffle tickets goes directly to support the senior center.  We need your help selling these tickets.  This is a great opportunity to raise considerable funds to support the center.

What a great year it has been already!  Til I see you again. . .
