Monthly President’s Report

February 2023

 

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough winter weather already and we are not anywhere close to being done yet. However, we do have to be thankful that we should have water in our streams, lakes, and rivers this Spring. The snowfall is also keeping businesses busy that may not have been during this winter season.

The significant snowfall made it challenging for our meals on wheels drivers recently but thankfully we distributed blizzard meals for those days when we cannot deliver. We also made a special delivery on Saturday, January 7th to those who requested a meal. Thank you to all who made this possible.

In the case of inclement weather, a televised announcement is posted on KELO and Dakota News Now. We also contact local radio stations and post on Facebook. An email is sent to our members stating the closure. Active Generations is closed if the Sioux Falls school systems are closed.

A reminder that we are closed on Monday, February 20th for President’s Day.

We will be hosting the free in-person AARP Tax-aide program again this tax season. Please call “211” to make an appointment. You will still come to Active Generations to get your taxes done but you will need to call the 211 Helpline to schedule the appointment. This helpline has been in existence since 1974 and they provide support 24 hours a day. The Helpline Center serves thousands of people every year by connecting individuals to resources and support.

Regards,

Gerald Beninga
