Monthly President’s Report December 2020 Merry Christmas to you and yours! May the season be a joyful one filled with good food, good friends, and good memories. This year has been particularly challenging for individuals, families, businesses and our community. As we learn to adjust to the challenges we all are facing due to the pandemic, let’s celebrate our accomplishments and progress. I have personally witnessed a tremendous rise in charitable acts and volunteerism within our community including making protective masks, volunteering to deliver meals to those who are self-quarantining, and donating money to assist those in need. We are all tremendously blessed to be part of this wonderful community!! Recently, we have been the recipient of several very generous donations from some wonderful community businesses and a former member’s estate. With these donations, our Nutrition department has purchased new ovens so they can continue to provide excellent and nutritious meals as well as being able to expand meal services in rural areas. We are also going to improve our internet so that we can provide virtual activities and tele-services to our members and clients. The generosity of our community and members is inspirational in any season! I would like to mention that very soon we will be sending out our annual Christmas card and Holiday Appeal envelopes. Please consider adding Active Generations to your giving list this season. Money raised through this campaign helps support all our programs and your dollars stay local and vital. Keep in mind that Active Generations will be closing early on Christmas Eve and will closed Christmas Day so that our staff can spend time with their families and friends. We will be keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers since you are part of our extended circle of friends as well. We wish you all the merriest of Christmas seasons! May you and yours be blessed with good cheer and health.
