SCONA NEWS JANUARY 2020

 

A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE KENILWORTH COMMUNITY LEAGUE FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF OUR FUNDRAISING EVENT IN DECEMBER, “CHRISTMAS DOWN ON THE FARM”. EVERYONE CLEARLY HAD A MARVELOUS TIME AND WE RAISED $2,950 THAT WILL GO DIRECTLY TOWARD OUR “TRAVELLING SENIORS CENTER” PROJECT AT KENILWORTH AND RITCHIE HALLS. THANK YOU ALSO TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED TO CARRY OFF THE EVENING AND TO ALL THOSE WHO ATTENDED!! WE ARE THINKING THAT OUR CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER SHOULD BECOME AN ANNUAL EVENT!!

 

2019 WAS A TERRIFIC YEAR FOR SCONA! WE SERVED WELL OVER 500 SENIORS OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR AND WE SINCERELY HOPE THAT YOU HAD PLENTY OF FUN, MADE NEW FRIENDS, RECONNECTED WITH OLD ONES, RECEIVED PLENTY OF HELP IN SOLVING PROBLEMS YOU MAY HAVE ENCOUNTERED, AND ENJOYED THE FOOD!! WE ANTICIPATE THAT 2020 WILL CONTINUE TO SEE US MEET WITH GREAT SUCCESS AND WE SINCERELY THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR KIND SUPPORT AND WONDERFUL WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT!
