June 2022

A LOT has happened since our last newsletter. We have a bunch of new and returning programs, new folks at the center, and new partnerships and events.

Starting in June, our Digital Equity Coordinator, Jennifer will no longer be doing home visits. She will still be available by appointment in the center on her usual days.

We’ve started a new partnership with the Uheights Center. They’ll be hosting a weekly group on Thursdays at 10a on zoom where they’ll do memoir writing, book reading, and have conversations. You can find more information on that here.

They also will be hosting Zumba classes over Zoom and you can find that information here.

You can register for all of these classes on Uheights website, or you can get the zoom links sent directly to you by emailing justinf@soundgenerations.org.

Footcare is back on June 6th. This is by appointment only. Email Justin at justinf@soundgenerations.org for availability. We are working to find a better system for booking and getting on a more consistent schedule in the future so that we can meet everyone’s needs. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.

A reminder that we have a vaccination event coming up on Friday, June 10th. There is no registration required ahead of time, and it’s completely free. If you need more information on that, you can find it here.

There is, of course, so much more happening. Be sure to check out the Calendar for new programs and events. And keep an eye out here. We’re working on revitalizing our website to make it a better resource with the most up to date information.

We’re excited for the warmer weather and look forward to seeing you all this summer!

Cheers,

Lake City Seniors

Farewell to Shaili

To Lake City Seniors-

I can’t believe how fast time flies but my time at HIP is coming to an end. I will be leaving my role as Meal Program Coordinator on July 16th in order to move to Portland to be closer to friends and my community. 

It’s been such a great pleasure cooking and serving meals for you all! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all over the course of the year and will miss seeing everyone who comes to our meal service. 

Despite it being a challenging year for so many of us, I’m so happy I got to spend it doing something I love and work with an amazing group of people, including everyone at Sound Generations, our amazing volunteers, and of course our seniors! Thanks for making my time with Lake City Seniors so special!

Farewell and lots of love,

Shaili
