Monthly President’s Report

SEPTEMBER 2018

September has many things happening for all of us:  the start of school for the children, the start of the fall season and Labor Day.  And here at Active Generations, we get back into the swing of even more activities.  Computer classes start up, activities increase their membership, and best of all, we have our 50th Anniversary Classic Car and Motorcycle Show on September 13 from 5 pm to 7 pm.  This spectacular event is FREE and open to the public so invite your friends, neighbors and family members to celebrate Active Generations 50th Anniversary of serving the Sioux Empire.  Cars and motorcycles from the 1900’s to the 1980’s will be on display, four food trucks will be selling their fabulous culinary creations, L & M will perform classic Rock & Roll from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and beverages will be available for purchase.  The proceeds from the beverage sales will benefit Active Generations.

As part of the Labor Day celebration, I would like to acknowledge all of the wonderful staff members and volunteers that I have the pleasure of working with at Active Generations.  Their accomplishments are many and their commitment to the community that we serve is unparalleled.  No matter what department they work with, whether they serve in Sioux Falls or one of the other communities where we have Nutrition sites, whether they are part-time, full-time or volunteer, our workers are exceptional.  If you get a chance to talk to any of them this month, take a moment to thank them for their service to our members, clients and community.

Finally, I want to extend a special thank you to our summer SDSU interns, Kate and Madison.  They have worked tirelessly on multiple projects for all Active Generations departments.  During their time with us, they showed a true dedication to our mission to promote positive aging for adults and to enhance the quality of life for all generations.  We wish them all the best in their future endeavors!

Enjoy all of the activities this month and thank YOU for being part of Active Generations.
