Hello Young at Heart Friends and Family;
I want to apologize to those of you who did not receive last week’s email. I was on vacation in the hills of Vermont, and I don’t know exactly what happened. Between time going fast, poor connectivity, and an aging mind, I will just apologize and not waste my limited resource (my aging brain, that is), on trying to figure it out.
I am hearing great reviews about last week’s presentation by the Alzheimer’s Association, and the outing to the Sistine Chapel exhibit. The great news of the week is that the Kent County Senior Millage passed. Thanks to those of you who went out to vote. These tax dollars provide a wide variety of services for people 60+ in all corners of Kent County.
If you posted a “Vote YES for the Senior Millage” sign in your yard, please return the sign to the Parish Center. The Area Agency on Aging is requesting to have the sign back. I will return them next week Wednesday, August 17th. Thank You!
*** Just a heads up for our exercisers… Colleen will be on vacation next week, August 14 – August 21. Classes will resume Monday, August 22nd at 9:30. ***
