From the Director

 

Dear Friends,

By the time you read the newsletter, the name of the winner of our 2017 Storm Shelter Raffle will have been drawn!  We appreciate the generosity of Allegiant Precast for donating the storm shelter and all the proceeds from the raffle to the Senior Center to support our programming.

We also hosted a Community BUNCO Bash on May 5th.  More than 150 Senior Center members and people from the Broken Arrow Community thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  We appreciate all who attended and volunteered to make the event a huge success.  Several companies donated door prizes and gift cards making the event special.  Our next Community BUNCO Bash is set for August 4th.

We appreciate our partnership with local companies that donate to the Center.  Donations include door prizes, gift cards and financial donations.  These companies help us to bring quality events and programming to you our members.  An example of local company supporting our efforts is the Ferguson Super Store in Broken Arrow.  They are generously supporting our Zumba Gold programming for 2017!   A listing of our May sponsors is below.  An additional list of sponsors supporting your Senior Center is on page 9 of our Silver Notes newsletter.  Consider utilizing the products and services these companies provide.

Please be mindful of parking near the entrances of the parking lot.  Available parking spaces are marked with yellow lines in addition to handicap symbols.  Please do not park in areas that are not marked.  It is important that we keep the entrances open for emergency vehicles.

A number of Senior Center members attended the May financial seminars presented by the Advancement Group.  If you were not able to attend these free seminars, watch for dates for the next seminar in the fall.   If you have any questions regarding these seminars, please stop in the office to speak with me.

Jenna Curtis, a local Girl Scout with Troop 2603, is working on her Silver Award by collecting items for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 32.  Jenna is collecting non-perishable food items and small toiletry items including toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, disposable razors, shaving cream, hand sanitizer, mouthwash, deodorant and bar soap.  Collection bins for these items will be available in our front office for the month of June.

Wishing you all a happy Father’s Day !  Til I see you again, take care.

June
