With ending of my year as the President of the Senior Center, I am reflecting on my experience.  Many members have offered messages of appreciation. It means a lot to me. I have met and talked with so many of you through the past year and have truly enjoyed those interactions. We have an amazing membership.

I am fortunate to have an impressive and dedicated Board of Directors who support the goals of the Center. They volunteer to lead different programs, bring new ideas of how we can improve the services to our members and  step up to help with all our special events. I am very appreciative of our office staff: Shirley, Peggy, and Beth for all they do behind the scenes to make the Center run.  Thank you.

Don’t forget to vote for the new Board of Directors. Fortunately, the Executive Board members, including myself have volunteered to remain in their positions and are running unopposed so we are a “shoe-in”. There is one Board position open for the coming year and two candidates. This newsletter contains an interview with the  candidates to help you in your decision. Please vote and return your ballot prior to or at the General Membership meeting on December 13th. Ballots will be counted, and the new board member announced. Please plan on attending the meeting.

The end of 2023 is fast approaching. Many of us will celebrate Christmas, the Christian religious holiday.  Others will reaffirm the ideals of Judaism with the celebration of Hanukkah.  May you all have the opportunity, however you celebrate, to enjoy the company of friends and family. Let’s all remember how this season is the perfect time to reflect on our many blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.

Until next time,

Sharon Brzoska, President
