I hope you are having a wonderful summer, staying dry from all the rain, and avoiding the heat—Fall will be here before we know it. I wanted to take this opportunity to share information on a few grants that were recently awarded to the Center:
° $25,000 from the WalMart Foundation to help fund the center’s lunch program
° $15,000 from the United Way of North Central Florida to help fund the center’s lunch program—this award totaled $45,000 and we will receive the award in 3 payments of $15,000 over the next 3 years
° $6,000 from the Plum Creek Foundation to purchase new computers and audio-visual equipment for the center
As most of you are aware we are in the process of conducting a search for our new Center Coordinator. We have received a strong response and hope to have this position filled in the very near future. In the interim we have revised our August Calendar and we are grateful for your patience during this transition period. We are in the process of developing our September calendar and will distribute it later this month.
If you have any questions or concerns about operations at the Center, please do not hesitate to contact us at 352-475-5347 or 352-225-3307.
Thank you for your continued support of IWI and the Melrose Senior Community Center.
