It remains to be seen if circumstances will permit us to implement all that we had hoped to offer you, as printed in The Calendar of Events. Rest assured, Serving Our Seniors remains operational to resolve your questions/problems/ concerns, over the phone. We will do all that we can to help you make it through this difficult time. Should you be faced with a serious problem that cannot be resolved over the phone, we will do our best to find a way to assist you. Please call us at 419-624-1856. Thank you to all who responded to the donation envelope which was inserted in the January 2020 magazine. You are a blessing! I would also like to thank the individuals of the Mylander Foundation and the Randolph J. & Estelle Dorn Foundation who donated to help us raise funds to renovate and expand Serving Our Seniors’ office. After the renovations are completed, we will have five (5) confidential meeting rooms available to you. Currently, we have only two such rooms. I also owe a debt of gratitude to our friend and former co-worker, Barb Hanck. In January 2020, Barb accepted a new position as the Director of the Sandusky Education Foundation. She didn’t leave until she was sure she had finished what she had started. Indirectly, Barb helped hundreds of our clients with her successful fundraising endeavors. She taught me so much. Sincerely, Sue Sue Daugherty Director October 2019 – January 2020 3
