February 2021

A message from
Carol Bartlett, Executive Director

Hello GRAPE Members,

As always, I am grateful for all of you and everything you are doing to help our seniors and support GRAPE!

This issue of the GRAPEvine highlights the many ways to get involved with GRAPE and keep our organization growing stronger: 

  • Join a committee and share your talents - all of our committees need help and there is sure to be one that fits your interests and availability
  • Attend the GRAPE monthly membership meetings to learn, “see” your fellow members and stay connected
  • Sponsor a meeting
  • Be a spotlight on the Seniors Rock Radio Show
  • Advertise in the newsletter
  • Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn
  • Refer a new member
  • Reach out to a new member and introduce yourself
  • Keep your ElderPages listing up to date

Give me a call or send me an email to discuss anything anytime - GET INVOLVED, SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT GRAPE AND YOUR COMPANY/ORGANIZATION AND STAY CONNECTED IN 2021!

Bev Groden, one of the founding members of GRAPE, recently passed away - DETAILS. In a previous issue of the GRAPEvine I had shared some history of GRAPE, which I have attached again HERE. We are thankful for Bev, as here we are almost
29 years later!

Thank you to Senior Care Authority and Baywinde Senior Living for sponsoring our February meetings. An ad in the GRAPEvine is one of the many benefits of sponsoring a GRAPE meeting. There are few spots left for meeting sponsors for 2021,
contact Carol to discuss!

Be sure to tune in on Saturdays at noon on WHAM 1180!
Help get the word out about GRAPE!
