Although my term as president of the Winters Senior Foundation has recently closed, I want to take this opportunity to personally thank all of you for your most generous support during this past three years. Your assistance, collaboration and interest in making our community better for all of our older adult residents is greatly appreciated.
Many of our older adults, their families and caregivers, continue to struggle to find the services and support system needed to age with pride, independence and freedom from maltreatment and want.
Though I’ve departed from the Winters Senior Foundation, going forward, my work of perpetual activism for the older adult community in the City of Winters will not conclude with that exodus. Still, it’s my mission to ensure that these needs are more than just assumed, but to expedite and advocate so that a synchronized organization of relevant services are being delivered on a daily basis.
I will continue to carry on in my advocacy work by public education and vigorous involvement in numerous older adult agencies throughout California that I’m actively united with, such as, Agency on Aging Area 4, Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance, Solano Senior Coalition, and many others. More importantly, I hope you will join me in these endeavors to help work with and assist our older adults so this work can continue in a shared effort targeted for achievement.
It’s essential to understand that volunteerism is not about sport or notching a political win for self-promotion. There’s a reason we elect to serve in the first place, and that people will appreciate — it’s to make the daily lives of older adults better. After all, active volunteerism for older adults is about something bigger. It’s about the character and fabric of our community―who we are, and who we aspire to be.
Once again, thank you for all your support it is greatly appreciated.
