We Remember, We Celebrate

Hello Young at Heart Friends and Family;

Survey Time: Many of you are familiar with the yearly survey YAH asks each participant to complete. Normally this survey is done in the Fall. However, with the KC Senior Millage contract ending this month, Area Agency on Aging has asked us to do a closing survey, and write a final report. (This survey does not ask you to identify yourself.) So, we will be asking you to complete the survey to assist us in writing our report. In case I do not catch up with you at the Center, Here is a copy that you can download and complete on your own and email back, or drop off at St. Al’s office or YAH. 

Just to help clarify some confusion, albeit some confusion will still remain for a bit, St. Alphonsus is in the process of deciding which programs will continue in July, under the guidance of their staff. The YAH Steering Committee is working with several other individuals to offer Senior Programming in a neighboring location, and secure a 501c3 (Non Profit Status). Once the new location is established, we will begin programming and move toward fundraising efforts. We hope to re-establish our wonderful relationship with the KC Senior Millage as quickly as possible. Please accept YAH apologies for the confusion this transitional state has caused. We will keep you informed the best we can. This email will continue weekly.

In the meantime, no two days are the same. So, come join us as we celebrate each day together, enjoying life and laughing together….
