A Message from the Board
The Friends of the Verona Senior Center Board would like to let you know what we have been doing and plan to do in 2020.
Our January 2020 meeting was very successful as we have:
- Approved $2,400 to the Senior Center for Programs in 2020
- Approved $2,000 to the Senior Center for Entertainment
- Approved a Club 108 computer purchase with the funds donated specifically for Club 108
- Approved the purchase of a tablet
Presently we have two goals for 2020:
- Purchase a computer for patron usage.
- Created a specific fund raiser to raise the necessary funds to purchase a treadmill
We will be providing monthly updates as to how we are doing with our goals and if we add additional goals.
If you would like to recommend anything to the board, please feel free to contact any member on the board.
Seniors—The Board of Directors Needs your Help!
Next Board Meeting is Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 9:30 AM
We want your Senior Center to offer the programs and activities that most interest our members. As a member of the Board of Directors, you are able to share your ideas and suggestions and assist in “making things happen.”
Our Board meetings are once a month from 9:30 to 11:00 am. You would need to give some time to assist with Board functions during the year. We are an active, fun Board and welcome new faces.
If you are interested, please give your name and phone number to the receptionist at the front desk or call the Senior Center at 845-7471 with that information. One of our Board members will call you to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Please consider joining our Board and contributing to one of the best Senior Centers around!
The Friends of Verona Senior Center Board of Directors sends a huge Thank you to all the wonderful businesses and personal donors to our Silent Auction. Click here for the PDF version.
