Memorial Day

Memorial Day is an American holiday which
is observed on the last Monday in May.
It is held to honor the men and women
who have died while serving in the
U.S. Military. It's a sacred day of
observance, centered on acknowledging, remembering, and thanking the millions
of people in uniform, who gave their
lives for this country.

It is about those brave heroes, and
the incredible sacrifice they made.

Since centers are opened with a regular schedule, we realize there may be some opportunities that we are missing.

Our purpose is to reach the people in
our communities with as many
activities as possible to the best of our
ability. We are interested in providing activities that you would enjoy.

Is there...
an activity you would like to do?
A game you would enjoy playing?
Participate in an art project?
Have a book review from the public library?
Have a movie and popcorn afternoon?
Share a pitch-in dinner?
Have a craft day?
Be informed about local scams?
A food you would like to see on the menu?

We have a few ideas in mind but your input will give us more direction. The possibilities are endless. So please take a few minutes; and let us know what you would like to see happen in your center.

You may turn suggestions in to your center's coordinator. Send them to us, or call and let us know what you'd like to happen.

We are looking for a part-time, able-bodied driver to transport our clients.
Please call if you are interested,
or stop by the Mt. Vernon office
for an application.
