A Letter From Our Director, January 2019

A new year is upon us and our 2019 memberships are now available! We have already had a few new members join us! It gives me pleasure to welcome our new and existing members to the Whiteside County Senior Center and the wide array of programs, activities, and opportunities that we provide! We have a commitment to offer activities and events that are appealing to each participant. The staff takes pride in our program offerings – from Medicare information, health and wellness activities to card games, day trips and meals. Your membership with the WCSC not only offers you a wide array of activities but it also helps our organization thrive. Your commitment to helping our organization grow is sincerely appreciated.

If you haven’t had a chance to renew your membership or become a member, we would encourage you to do so this month! January starts our membership drive. Memberships are $25 for an individual or $35 per couple. We now have a sustainers club! We are so excited to implement this, and we hope you’ll join!

What is a sustainer? A sustainer is someone for as little as $1.66 per day can help our organization thrive the whole year through! As a sustainer, you will commit to helping the center be the best it can be each day by providing a set monetary donation each month. So where does the club come in? As part of the sustainers club, you will have your picture displayed here at the center, invited to quarterly socials, and so much more! If you would like more information on becoming part of the sustainer’s club, please contact myself or Assistant Director Beth. We would be happy to provide you with more information!

Yesterday our members enjoyed our Christmas dance and I must say, it was a wonderful afternoon. For those you that attended, I hope you feel the same! I am so very thankful for Roger and the joy he brought our group. I truly enjoyed how happy you looked while dancing the afternoon away, talking with your friends, and just enjoying the music. We hope to have Roger back again this Spring.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to seeing you when you stop in to become a member in 2019!
