This month we’d like to shine the light on some familiar faces around here. Mike & Sharon Pierce are a mix of new and old to the center. Sharon has been a member since 2010, while Mike joined in 2018. Before the shutdown, Mike was wearing several hats, working in the Trip Office and working in the Nutrition Program two days a week. They both also enjoy working at our special events, and were first time drivers for our Operation Senior Cause. During the shutdown they’ve both have been volunteering in the Thrift Store as well as serving as Transportation Assistance Program drivers. Mike and Sharon are both from the area. Sharon was born in Boston, but came out here when she was three. Mike on the other hand was born and raised out here. They met on a blind date when she was 18, and he was 22. They were married 6 weeks later! Together they have two kids and five grandchildren. He worked for Fedco and retired from Beaver Medical for over 20 years each whereas she worked for the same mortgage company. We would like to thank the Mike and Sharon for their ongoing dedication to the center and its members during these troubling days.

Everyone who attends any activity from May 1st through May 20th will get a ticket for each and every activity they participate in. Then on the 20th we will celebrate a free b.b.q.

During the free B.B.Q. lunch, there will be a series of raffle drawing for all of those who earned tickets during the activities. So the more activities you attend, not only the better youll feel, but also the better your chances are to win great gifts. Please sign up for events and R.S.V.P. for the BBQ no later than the morning of May 20th. But remember: Working on getting or staying healthy through diet and exercise is something that isnt made to last a week or a month. It should last a lifetime. Also dont forget to celebrate the 18th annual Senior Health & Fitness Day on Wednesday, May 25th. This years theme is \"Make Fitness a Goal for Life!\" Thats a good theme for people of all ages.
