Dear Seniors,
With another new year upon us, it’s a good time to reflect on the past and to renew plans for the future.  I’m looking forward to what 2016 has in store for us!  We have put together some new adventures for the next few months and I hope it’s enough to lure you out of your homes now that winter has finally arrived.  
The fact that you’re reading this newsletter tells me something about you already.  It tells me that you are interested in being an active member of this community and that you value connection. There’s more I’d like to know about you, however.  I’d like to know what you need from this parks and recreation department, as well as what you need from your community! I’m thinking about putting together a group to help plan activities as well as to address some of the needs of senior citizens in Standish. Is this a good idea? Please contact me if you would like to know more.
The parks and recreation department mails out 200 quarterly newsletters to seniors who have signed up to receive one, but there aren’t 200 different participants in our programs.  How come?  Are you one of the people who receives a newsletter, but has never signed up for a program?  If so, why not?  I’d love to know.  Is there something we’re not offering that you wish we offered?  Let me know! Likewise, why don’t we have more than 200 seniors in our community who would like a newsletter mailed to them?  How can we reach them?  Can you help? 
There is a lot going on in Standish already.  The Municipal Center is buzzing with activities for seniors on a daily basis—from lunches and fitness programs to games, and lots of them, but I know we can do more.  Together we can make it happen.  I’d love to hear from you, so give me a call or drop me line and let’s get started!
