Spring is finally here! Or did we skip it and "spring" right into summer? I'm looking forward to our Spring Luncheon next week. It will be a time to reconnect with other members, learn about some great resources for seniors in our community, enjoy a delicious lunch, hear an inspiring speaker and hopefully go home with one of the many fabulous door prizes. The luncheon also serves as our annual business meeting where we will discuss some changes to the bylaws, approve our board members and provide you with a financial budget update. We will also be asking you for feedback via a survey to find out how you are experiencing the format/structure meeting changes and our website. We look forward to your honest feedback - this is how we learn how to serve our membership better. I hope to see you there!
