A Visit to the Board of Selectmen:
Pictured starting on the left and from the Board of Selectmen's meeting on 02/27 are: COA Board Members Anne Fitzgerald and Joanne Morel, COA Board Chair Karen Nichols, Friends Board member Russell Gallini, Acting COA Director Lourie August, along with the Friends of COA President Art Budnik with Sue Culhane of the Council on Aging Board.
The Friends of the ACoA was before the Board of Selectmen on Monday 2/27/12 discussing their 2011 initiatives and donations for the Council on Aging and our Senior Citizens. The Friends group has donated a bit over $7,500 for the last calendar year. It includes funding in support of medical transportation, support for technology upgrades for the COA and the "Stockings for Seniors" program during the holiday season. The Friends also holds the "Running With Friends" 5K each September to help raise these funds.
Thank you to "Yes for Arlington" and their gracious donation of $3,000 to the Friends of the ACoA! The board of the Friends of the ACoA are donating over $7,500 for Arlington Senior Citizens and the COA for this calendar year. Help from Yes for Arlington [Clarissa Rowe Chair] goes a long way to make that possible. Our giving history is noted under the "About us" tab or click here.
