The board of directors met in January. Major discussion included the aging building and mechanical systems long past their lifespan. The board saw an initial building renovation proposal. The board agreed to continue the process by hosting special committees to look at financial strategies, logistics and marketing. January 23rd was a great day!! The Pool was re-dedicated and a ribbon cutting held. Water Classes begin in February. Thanks for your patience! The Morris AB Room will be closed in February so we can install a new heating system. Thanks for adapting, as we will need to move groups around to accommodate everyone.
Happy New Year! The Board members and Staff are excited for a new year of opportunities to serve our community’s Older Adults. New options include Tai Chi for Arthritis, learning about Climate Change, Mending Relationships in Later Life, and the popular Stained Glass class is returning! The board is planning for future longevity of the building and is working with a local architect on possible facility updates. The Aquatic Pool repairs are close to being complete with the installation of the large dehumidifier. New water classes are listed in this newsletter, with signups beginning January for Rowan County residents, 55 and older. Consider becoming a Board member and getting involved. New positions open July 2019 and we need those with experience in finance or facility operations.
