Office Staff Notes Happy New Year! What a year it has been. We have been through so many changes within our center and we anticipate that change is inevitable and we expect even more in the year to come. We want to thank every one of our volunteers that helped us out in 2013. We could not run this place efficiently without you. Thank you all so much! As you have noticed, the front entrance is now the ONLY entrance into our facility. You may exit out the front and the south door. This is done to provide extra security to our staff and our members. Thank you for respecting this new policy. We will be adding four additional handicapped parking spaces in the front of the building. Staff will park by the FiftyForward sign and the vans will not occupy any of the handicapped spaces. This allows our members to have better access to spots located near the Front door.

We are still in the process of hiring a new Center Director. This is a position that corporate is holding in high regard and they want to make sure they choose the right person. We anticipate that this process will go on through January and Fran will be here until they come to a decision. Happy New Year! Fran, Lisa, James and Joe
