Fall 2016 grants- $6,500 was awarded to nine area agencies. See the Grants and Awards section above for details.
Commitment to Caring Award Winner of our 2016 Commitment to Caring Award, cosponsored by the Nawrocki Center for Elder Law, Special Needs and Disability Planning. This year's award went to Debra Wilbanks. Senior Power Day 2016 Went off without a hitch on Friday, August 5th. Thanks to all who mad it happen. Over 400 seniors had a great time with our returning favorites, including our strolling minstrels, Stillwater, lunch with Ed Sugar and his soothing sax, and 50+ vendors lining the walls of the great Commons of Pinckney High School to share information.
This year we had an Arm Chair Travel" program as our morning highlight with Deb Wilbanks taking us to Australia and Europe with a little ship cruising mixed in.
And our afternoon entertainment was The Taiku Drummers, sharing their amazing rythmic drumming. Surprising was how quickly their "volunteer" from the audience caught on and kept up.
We also had the Big Red Barrel for obsolete medication disposal (they reported collecting 26 pounds of obsolete prescription medications.) and our free paper shredding truck was on sight from 9:00-1:00. (remember that for next year.)
We also announced our 2016 Summer grant recipients.
