May 2, 2019 Be An Inspiration!
April 25 program:
The first group of 120 boxes were filled with special treats for recipients of Meals on Wheels. The Birthday Boxes will be delivered to the recipients on their birthdays, along with their daily meal delivery. Boxes included a small lap warmer, word puzzle game book, small writing notebook, snack pack, pack of cookies, mints, a patriotic pinwheel, and a birthday card. Wrapped with a ribbon, the boxes sport a birthday greeting sticker. The boxes will be stored at Bayside Transportation until days of delivery. Thank you Paul Keely and Steve Worden for chairing this project.
The 2019 Report to the Community is here! And looks better than ever. The move to glossy paper adds heft and a certain level of professionalism any magazine would offer. Thank you to everyone, especially Cindi Viviano, project chair, for making our 20th Report better than ever. More than $47,000 was raised in advertising sales.
