Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to make a place that seniors can play, laugh, and have fun daily. Keeping them active in all the activities they want or like. Show them we care and are there for each and everyone. We are there to help the seniors/senior center make our new home relaxing, comfortable and place to enjoy daily, as well as the community to take part in all activities.

Some seniors are by themselves, this makes it easier to come to the center for the one on one talks, exercises, card games,
crafting, ceramics.

All of this is free.

We will continue to have fund raising events to support all the needs at the senior center. Seek grants where ever possible, to easy some of the burdens placed on us. We have built our own website in which people can see what's happen, or go to social media to enjoy some of the things we do.

We listen to the needs of the center and seniors. We improve every year seeking more and more fun things to do.

We are improving on our monthly Bingo, to get more people to come. Have increased our beginning jackpot and have added a cash ball that grows monthly if not won.

This is all new to most of us. In the past we have just dealt with the seniors at our old center. Very little fund raising events other than Bingo.

We already have changed Bingo to entice more people to par take in the event.

We have increase our Holiday Craft tables from 18 (old Center) to 85 in 2015, to 105 for 2016 and growing each year. 2017, will take on two days for this event

We already have already increased our Christmas Bags from 100, to 2015 being 160 and the needs are getting bigger each year. We have volunteers who help make hats,scarfs, blankets and seek donations.

How high is up, we don't know but keep plugging and seeking more help from the community.

We now have funds for the Hot Soup Program. 2015 we bought or had built a new stage for the dining room, new audio equipment so that this can be rented out and be used for anything.

We have upgraded the Ceramics room with new cabinets and storage to the tune of $28,000

We provide furnishing the senior center, tables, card tables, blinds, tinting of windows, patio furniture.

We have upgraded the DART Transportation Offices with new furnishings. A cost of $16,500.00

We provide Senior Center requested items on an annual basis. Recently new software to tract dinning participants. for a cost of $14,500.00.

We have provided funding of $2,000.00 to sponsor Concerts in the Park for the entire County population
