August message from the Director
I hope that you’re finding ways to beat the heat and stay safe this week. Don’t forget that we’re open Monday through Friday from 9:30 am until 2:30 pm if you need a cool place to hang out in the air conditioned comfort of your Senior Center. It is very important to stay hydrated and to take care of yourself, and each other. Take a minute to check on your neighbors to make sure that they are ok, too. Heat illness can come on very quickly and we’re very concerned about our friends.
We’re planning some wonderful events for the coming months and we’re already starting to collect items for our annual Rummage Sale that will be held on September 10th. So feel free to start bringing in those treasures! The Pancake Breakfast and Rummage Sale is one of our largest events of the year and we’re looking for plenty of volunteers to share the workload and make it a fun and profitable event for our Senior Center. As always, we’ll have our fabulous pancake breakfast in the morning, so be sure to mark your calendars for September 10th.
Our Spotlight Article introduces our new Assistant Director, Jaci Smith. She is a longtime Cloverdale resident who is very familiar with our community members and activities. Please come in and say “hello” and make her feel welcome. As always, thank you for your ongoing support of the Cloverdale Senior Center!
