From the Director
During the month of November, we celebrate the national holiday of Thanksgiving. According to history, it began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of harvest. We can also think of the two words “thanks” and “giving” separately, and ask... What are we thankful for? What are we giving? We are blessed at the Senior Center with a wonderful staff, board of directors, volunteers, community partners, government officials, and donors who generously give. We are blessed with a nice facility where we can gather with friends. We are blessed with many programs, activities and services which enrich lives. In just a few days, 15 of us will travel to London and Paris. We will visit the Eiffel Tower, Westminster Abbey, the Louvre Museum, Windsor Castle, and Versailles Palace. Our travel program is so amazing! The recent 80’s Prom Murder Mystery Fundraiser was also a success! The characters and their attire were a sight to behold! And, yes, I was able to wear my 1984 Prom Dress… with some minor alterations. Our next fundraiser will be the 11th annual Christmas Gala. Hope you are making plans to attend this popular and elegant event. On November 12th, we will honor our veterans and their families with a breakfast. We are forever grateful for their sacrifice and service. During the next two months, there will be opportunities to give to others in our community. We are collecting items for “Santa’s Workshop,” an intergenerational partnership with Woodbury Grammar School. We are also participating in Toys for Tots, sponsored by U.S. Marines and the American Legion; and, the Coat, Toy and Canned Food Drive, sponsored by Cash Express. Look for the boxes throughout the Senior Center. You can also adopt a “Senior Star” again this year for Christmas. A tree in the front foyer will be displayed soon. We want to welcome our new trustee, Kyle Sandlin, to the Center. His hard work is appreciated! This Thanksgiving, and throughout the year, let us never take for granted our many blessings...and always remember, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Sometimes we give and wonder if it is well received. What is most important...is that we give.
