Center Director Notes… Dear Friends: Thanks to all of you who helped make the holidays a little brighter by donating a gift, a song or even just a smile. No matter how many differences we may have, we always have more in common than what we think. Let’s be grace-filled with each other even if we don’t always agree. This holiday season, I want to thank the dedicated staff and volunteers. Donelson Station is very blessed to have a creative and caring team of staff and volunteers. They work hard to make sure your center is a welcoming place that offers opportunities for friendship, learning and fun. By now members should have received a wonderfully designed card from a FiftyForward Adult Day Services member asking for support. While membership fees offset some of the building costs, it does not cover everything. I ask that you please consider making a year-end tax deductible contribution. As always, thank you for your continued involvement. I wish you the best this holiday season! Sincerely,

Angela Bryan Katie Blancett (morning) kblancett@fiftyforward.org Tanis Westbrook (afternoon) Hi Friends, twestbrook@fiftyforward.org John Martin (temp morning and Saturday)
