Have a Heart Campaign has begun
Starting February 1st, we will be giving the members of the Senior Center and the community an opportunity to support the Center through our annual Have a HEART Campaign. Any donation is accepted from small to large! Be watching for the pink Have a HEART letter in your mailbox this month. Each person or business that donates to the Senior Center will have their name posted on our Have a HEART wall in the mail entrance of the Senior Center. We hope to add new and exciting programs and activities this year for our members. 2013 goal is $6000.
