Committee Chair Updates:
- Committee will start meeting again late summer/early fall to begin planning for the 2021 Legislative Town Hall tentatively scheduled for Friday, February 5, 2021.
e are so excited that we have 28 baskets/raffles for our online fundraiser. The web site page is almost completely set and will be opening the raffle on June 1 and closing it June 10. In lieu of our traditional Gala we will hold an online Zoom happy hour and announce the winners of the raffles on June 11. We currently have $11,910 in committed sponsorships and still might have one or two more, but we are incredibly thankful for the amount our members have offered. All this week we will be doing Facebook posts as teasers for the raffle and instructions for the online raffles will also be sent out in the GRAPEvine newsletter.
THE ELDERPAGES DIRECTORY
- For a variety of reasons the printed directory will be put on hold until 2021. The committee will be working hard the rest of this year to have the online directory listings updated.
- The Marketing Committee is brainstorming alternative ways to have eldercare fairs in the case that we cannot continue to have traditional fairs. We are also brainstorming other ideas for networking opportunities besides zoom meetings.
- Membership renewal for the 2020-2021 GRAPE year is underway. New member orientation in the fall.
Two successful webinars completed in May, conducting a survey regarding summer programming and options for fall meetings.
SENIOR HOUSING ALLIANCE (SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP)
We had two successful meetings in May that went very well on keeping each other updated on COVID-19 procedures as well as bouncing around ideas on how to keep residents engaged during this time. May 29 was our last meeting of the GRAPE calendar year and we will resume in September.
ALL COMMITTEES ARE ACTIVE AND CURRENTLY MEETING VIA ZOOM.
MOST COMMITTEES WILL TAKE A BREAK FOR THE SUMMER, WITH SOME MEETING AS NEEDED.
