Hey all, I have made some contacts with the activities coordinator for Fox Ridge Retirement Community. They would be more than thrilled to have some people come in and adopt a senior, bring in pets or anything else you want to do. Well, maybe not anything. Fox Ridge has independent and assisted living floors and they are always looking for some friendly faces. Let me know if you are interested and I will send you some contact info for the coordinator who can help you find a good time to come in. Bridget is also looking at a couple other places and expecting return calls soon. I think it would be cool if we mix it up a bit and have people going to different places. That way, at the end of the month, we could get together and talk about the different facilities and our experiences. I'm thinking of scheduling a dinner get-together so we can talk about our service. How do you feel about Thursday February 25th at 6PM? Also, I am open to location suggestions for dinner.
Open Door Outreach is a social group for friendship and volunteerism. ODO is secular, nonpolitical, and open to everyone! Volunteer opportunities are reviewed and planned at our Monday coffee house meetups (5:20-6:30'ish at Sufficient Grounds), but it's not necessary to attend those meetings to volunteer with the group at any of our activities. We also have occasional social get togethers just to have fun! So... this is a great Meetup spot for anyone who enjoys fun, friendship, and doing some really Feel Good things. :)
