FROM OUR PRESIDENT CONNIE COFFMAN:

We have been quite fortunate escaping the flooding that has plagued parts of our United States. We did have a little scare a couple of weeks ago but luckily the temperature was warm enough to melt those big chunks in our Grand River thereby allowing the rising river to run out into the lake! This has been a very busy month for my husband and I, because all it seems to us is that we are at a doctor’s office at least 2 times a week. Hopefully, that will settle down soon. Many of our members at the Fairport Harbor Senior Center keep asking when, if ever, will we get our much needed addition. Now that is a good question and I do wish I had an answer for all of you! Many of our members have volunteered their services to help us with the fundraisers we have had and are still having to earn enough money to help get this addition. Right now we have around $96,000 in our building fund account. That seems like it would be a big enough chunk of change to begin building but it is not. Preliminary estimates from the contractors we have had conversations with, quote anywhere between $700,000 to $900,000! It has taken us 4 years to get the $96,000 so figure it out and see how long it would take to make our dream a reality.
I have heard comments that the village is dragging their feet in getting this addition started. I would like to address this issue because, THE VILLAGE, IN NO WAY, is standing in the way. They are not the ones who will provide money for this. Our center gets funding from the Lake County Commissioners’ budget and we know that they have seen first hand the need that we have. But there are more that one or two senior centers that they provide funding for, and consequently, no additional monies have come to us yet. We would need approximately $60,000 a year in addition to what they give our center to make the monthly payment on the loan. Hopefully, we can convince them that our need is great because we have over 2000 members now.
As we get any new, encouraging information on funding an addition, we will make sure you are kept up to date on everything that happens. But for now, let’s just wait and see what happens because there are two new commissioners now and maybe, just maybe they may find a way to help us out.
  A NOTE FROM CHRIS:
PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR LABEL ON THE FRONT OF YOUR NEWSLETTER  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE 2017 MARKED ON YOUR LABEL YOUR DUES ARE NOW DUE. COME IN AND ENJOY A CUP OF COFFEE, MEET NEW FRIENDS, LEARN TO WII BOWL,  TAKE A ONE DAY TRIP, EXERCISE, GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. THIS IS YOUR CENTER- NEW IDEAS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME! HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON.
WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP  PICK UP BREAD, MAKE CABBAGE ROLLS, ANSWER PHONES IN THE AFTERNOON.  PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE WILLING TO HELP.
