Message from the Director:
Fall is here, which brings us the beautiful changing colors of the leaves and a lot of fun fall events to attend.
Our annual dinner will be held on Thursday, November 7 at Alder Creek Banquet Facility with Just Say Cheesecake as caterer. This is such a wonderful event and an evening for all to enjoy. This year we will be honoring Linda Finiki as Citizen of the Year, Kenmore Mercy Hospital as Business of the Year and Phyllis Genter, who will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.
