Center Director Notes... Dear Friends: What a busy month it’s been! Thank you for your patience as we make much needed building improvements in several rooms and outside. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope to finish soon. Thanks also to those who have made contributions to the Center through our matching campaign. There’s still time for any gift of any size to be matched by a wonderful anonymous donor. The deadline is June 30. We need volunteers to help in the office on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons. If you are interested in helping out during any of these times, please call James or Joe. Thanks to all the fabulous volunteers who support our work daily! In this quarter of Forward Focus, FiftyForward is featuring “FiftyForward Firsts”—a challenge for all of us to consider “When was the last time you did something for the first time?”. Boy! Have I learned a lot here in my first three months! Names, procedures, history, musicals and so much more! I look forward to learning more and creating many ‘firsts’ with you all! As always, if you have any ideas or concerns, stop by and see me! Sincerely, Angela Bryan
