Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe that it is 2018. I have been at Shelby Senior Services a year this month and that is amazing to me. I have learned a lot about this position, the staff, the community and the seniors in this year. I am so thankful for my staff, the Board, the seniors and the community for all of their help over the last twelve months.
I am looking forward to the New Year and all that it has in store for us here at Shelby Senior Services. I am excited because of the possibilities that are before us. Shelby Senior Services, Inc. celebrates being in business for 40 Years this year! We will again be the only Accredited Senior Center in Indiana for the second year. We are looking at a few different fundraisers this year, as well as keeping The Strawberry Fest and Dancing with the Shelby County Stars. ShelbyGo changes have been going well and are making a difference in the number of seniors who are riding the Loop. I feel that these changes have been good for the community.
As I look forward to this year, I am also reflecting on the past year. It has been a good year for Shelby Senior Services. We are fully staffed, able and willing to jump in and help as needed. This last year we served the 60 and better population over 36,700 times. This includes events, rides, services, and trips. We have had almost 2,500 volunteer encounters and have given out over 35,000 lbs. of food from the Shelby Senior Services Senior Food Pantry in the past six months.
We look forward to serving you in 2018. Please feel free to contact Shelby Senior Services at 317-398-0127, www.shelbyseniorservices.org or on Facebook.
