Come Join Us At Home Town Heroes! October 10, 2015
Drs. Rahim have generously supported the Senior Activity Center and continue to offer their support. It is our turn to be grateful and offer our support to them as well.
They are providing a booth and banner for the Senior Activity Center at the Home Town Heroes Award Gala on October 10, 2015. They have provided us with tickets to the Gala as well as a bus to and from the Stephens Performing Arts Center, leaving here at 3:30-3:40 P.M. and returning us to the Center at the end of the event. This Gala is semi-formal dress and is important to the community. We need to show up in force and in support of this great foundation.
I have left a sign-up sheet (you can call in your reservation as well) with the office and you will find one in the cafeteria, as well. We need to turn in our numbers no later than 3 days prior to the Gala. I am encouraging everyone, including the Board of Directorso and Staff to ride the bus and show support in numbers for this wonderful Foundation. Ronna Rae Dueling, Director. Below are posters of the happenings at the Gala, including a car show. PLEASE ATTEND!
