This is the day, the Lord has made let us rejoice, and be glad in it. Just want to report that the Older American’s Day was a blast! Almost perfect! That shows a true lesson — together we stand, divided we fall. Thanks again to all who donated, or helped in any way. Words cannot express how thankful we are. A special thank you to Mr. Perry Parker, Mitchell Monroe, and all the talented musical performers and sound technicians. That was a blessing!

A special thanks to commissioner Lee Carberry for helping with the yard work, commissioner Austin Brown for making sure our grass was cut, and Commissioner S.J. Smith for his personal support and contributions. The out pouring from all over the county was unbelievable and very touching. We hope next year will be even better! It was estimated that we had over 500 folks present throughout the day.

The health care agencies, insurance agencies, parks and rec, health department, home extension, churches — oh my I can’t name them all. Just know we appreciate you all!

People are always looking for success- one key to successful leadership is continuous change continuous change. Personal change is a reflection of our inner growth and empowerment. ~Robert E Queen

Volunteers are like precious jewels to me. Here at the Garland Senior Center our volunteers are too great to try and describe, yet I will say that Josie McKoy, Mary Smith, Edna Hayes, Darlene McKoy, Edith Moyer, Rebecca Moser, and Fred Herring all went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly. My heart and my eyes seem to tear up when I think of the many hats y’all wear. God Bless!
