Hello to all.
What an interesting year it has been! When we last communicated with you, we were basically shut down, like everyone else, due to COVID-19. We have since carefully re-opened and are serving about 25 participants per week, as opposed to 50 pre-COVID.
For our many volunteers and donors:
Because of you, we can resume our bingo nights once per month.
Because of you, though delayed twice by Marion County restrictions, we were able to hold our 7th Annual Mud Run. We look forward to having our 8th Annual Mud Run this year, without restrictions, on Saturday, June 26th.
Because of you, our golf outing was, once again, well attended and successful. We will see you all at this year’s golf outing on Thursday, August 26th.
Because of you, we can begin construction next month on our outdoor space.
Because of you, we have continued to serve our many happy participants and experience the joy they express when they get together with their friends. Joel Persinger said it best at the Mud Run . . . “It’s so good to be with my people again!” It is good to know that Joel and others consider our participants and volunteers to be their friends.
For our dedicated staff and board members:
Because of you, we have obtained EIDL, EIDG, and PPP funding.
Because of you, we continued to serve our participants with no COVID outbreaks.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your financial support, for volunteering, for participating, and for your prayers. Looking forward to seeing you all at this year’s Hollis Adams events.
Tom McCalley, President
