From Where I Sit


Dear Friends,

It's November already! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and as always, a great time to reflect on the many fortunes we have in our lives. Saying thank you is important and we try to do it each and every day for all the wonderful support we get throughout the year.

Thank you to all of the Colonial Club volunteers who year in and year out help keep things running smoothly. If you aren't a volunteer yet, consider signing up!

Thank you to the Board of Directors and paid staff members. These folks are often overlooked when it comes time to say thanks and we are grateful for their dedication to the Colonial Club and their shared concern for enhancing the well-being and independence of older adults.

Thank you to everyone who comes out for our big events like StrawberryFest & Brat Bash. We had a great Sfest this year, and this year's Brat Bash set records! Just one more to go on Friday evening, Nov. 2nd for the 8th annual ColoniALE Fest....see you there!

Thank you to all the people at Dane County Human Services, the Area Agency on Aging and the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Dane County. We appreciate their sustained support and the Area Agency on Aging's special support of our purchases of new kitchen equipment.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who utilize the Colonial Club. Whether you are here to play cards, take a class, spend some time in the adult day center, receive some assistance from a case manager or enjoy a meal, your presence makes our day complete.

Thank you for your patience as we FINALLY have the bathroom remodel in the rearview mirror.
