Coordinator's Comments

June/July 2019

Welcome to your summer issue of the Senior Buzz. We have a great lineup of trips, events and activities to fill up your summertime calendar.  

Thank you to all who attended our Spring Luncheon at Ahern’s Banquet Center. Special thanks to the MANY vendors that donated door prizes for our luncheon! A list of these vendors can be found on page 5.   

Check out all the great trips planned to explore Cleveland and surrounding areas. Additionally, we have Chair Volleyball and our Annual Picnic along with our regular events. Beginning in June, we will have Open Board Games every Thursday at 1:00 PM. So if you like to play Scrabble, Rummikub, Yahtzee or something else, bring your game and some friends.

If you are not already aware, we have modified our policies for Movie Day and for our Medical Equipment Loan Program. We are now taking RSVP’s for Movie Fridays. We also ask that anyone signed up must be here and seated no later than 12:55 PM, or you will forfeit your seat to a walk-in. Additionally, to avoid disruptions, no one will be allowed into the movie after 1:05 PM. We also modified our policy for our Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program. We are in a situation where our inventory is extremely low, and we are unable to loan equipment to folks who are recovering from illness or injury. Medical equipment loans are for short-term use (up to 3 months). Avon residents requesting equipment must now pay a cash security deposit, which will be refunded after the equipment is returned, clean and undamaged. Further information on this program policy can be found on page 10.

Finally, special thanks to Willoway Nursery for donating their time and materials on Pride Day and planting the beautiful flowers in the pots at the Senior Center entrance. Summer is just around the corner!

Be well. Happy summer. We hope to see you soon.
