A message from the Director

Hello Everyone!

Happy Red, White and YOU! A very happy July to all of you and I’m so thankful for our wonderful Senior Center members – you’re the best reason to come to work every day! Even on the days that you’re grumbling about how hot it is, you’re the reason I say “I’m wonderful, why not?” when you ask how I’m doing! Because I know you already have enough on your plate. Thank you for coming in to our little Senior Center just to grab a bite of Valerie’s delicious lunch, or have our Starbucks pastries, a great conversation with friends, or by golly to enjoy the air conditioning on these blistering Cloverdale summer days!

This month’s newsletter has some very important ways to beat the heat, so be sure to check that out! We have to keep our friends safe in these summer months, and if it’s too hot to be outside – don’t do it! Give us a call and we’ll get you in touch with the Meals on Wheels program through Council on Aging to see if your meal can be delivered. Those are the Meals on Wheels delivery driver angels! And when in doubt, drink a little water, it really is good for you!

We also have the Christmas in July Craft Fair on July 16th at the Senior Center and the Creative Notions Anniversary Sale on July 23rd – both fun days to shop and support the Senior Center. Please be sure to stop by!

As always, if there’s something special that interests you, please let us know and we’ll do our best to bring you that program, event, trip, or class. We’re all in this together, might as well have a little fun while we’re here! Have a fabulous and very safe July!

Much love,
Colleen Hale
Executive Director

Background & History

On September 16, 1987 Genevieve J. Malmstrom signed the Articles of Incorporation. Thus began the Cloverdale Senior Multipurpose Center, originally operating out of the Cloverdale Grange Hall. Soon thereafter, Jim Teague began urging construction of a new senior center building.

Ten years later, the Cloverdale City Council led the effort to secConstructionure grants from several government agencies to construct a new senior center building. At the same time, citizen leaders started raising private funds toward the same end.
Under challenging economic circumstances, over $1,000,000.00 was raised through these two parallel efforts, public and private, and the new building at 311 North Main Street was dedicated May 16, 2003.
