So many people to thank for all their gracious help.  A great bunch of guys from Robinson Mining helped unload a large amount of freight we received.  Fred Sanders, Tony Whittaker, Josh DeLeon, and Matt Thompson did a lot of lifting and stacking that day. Our regular Wednesday volunteer, Jim Parry was on hand to help as well.

Saturday, June 1 Shadrick Michaels, eight grade teacher at Learning Bridge and two of his students, Emma Holdaway and Rylee St. Aubin planted flowers. They did an amazing job, looks great!

And keeping them looking gorgeous is Snuffy Smith. Snuffy waters the flowers every day.   Thanks a bunch!

Members of the Blue Ribbon 4-H club – Trinity, Brooke-Lynn, Foster, Cheyenne, Miley, Jasmine and Jennifer along with their parents cleaned up around the grounds of the Senior Center.

Let’s all help keep it looking respectable by picking up any litter we might see.

Many helping hands made our Annual Parking Lot sale a huge success! Our proceeds were $1100.60.

Thanks to ( and hope I don’t forget anyone) Mona Clayton, Donna Sjogren, Donna Kealoha, Luanne Griffith, Judy Nelson, Cindy Bell, Jennifer Messina, Carolyn Merrill, Lisa Scoble, Randy Beck, Jan Beckett, Kathy and Steve Cobb. Many of these individuals help set up, sell, and clean up! Can’t thank you enough.  And of course all the folks that donated items and bought treasures. 

We couldn’t have such an awesome place for our seniors without volunteers that give their time, money and skills. Thank you for making a difference!
