Thank you to all Senior Fair volunteers

Gratitude is being extended to all who made the Senior Foundation of Mercer Island’s “5th Senior Resource Fair” a huge success. Thank you to the management and staff at the Mercer Island Community Center who made our accommodations and comfort a priority; the vendors and speakers who provided timely and useful information; the more mature volunteers who pitched in moving tables and chairs and being available to be “gofers”; our younger volunteers, the Mercer Island High School National Charity League organization who have been working closely with the Senior Foundation on many programs and projects proving to be a Mercer Island asset.

A final thank you goes to all our past and especially, our current board members:  Ina Bahner, Barbara Levinski, Patti Murphy, Terry Schuler, Leslie Scott, Connie Tupper and Angela Decker whom we applaud for organizing these fairs for the past nine years and so much more.

Due to these outstanding ladies the community has been given $60,000 to support senior connected issues.  For more, go to our Website: www.seniorfoundationofmi.org, or contact Leslie Scott at 206-232-4597.
