A message from our staff…
To our dearest friends,
We hope you are all faring well during this very unsettling time. We want you to know that even though the center itself is closed, our staff is available to you. Please call us with any questions, concerns, or just to check in. We can not express how much we miss having you all at the center. We are all looking forward to seeing your smiling faces again. Please be safe, and make sure you are practicing “social distancing”, do not take any unnecessary risks. If you need something, anything, call us. We are here for you, always.
Joanne, Judy, Joyce, Michelle, Paul and Meg
