Senior Connections Celebrates 40th Anniversary in 2013
Senior Connections extends best wishes for a successful, happy and fulfilling year in 2013. We appreciate the tremendous support we receive from
program participants, family members, friends, community partners, funders and contributors. As we begin this wonderful New Year, we look forward
to celebrating the Agency's 40th Anniversary. We have much to celebrate. We impact the lives of more than 22,000 individuals each year in important ways. We provide direct services to approximately 3,500 seniors and caregivers each year. We are thankful for our talented and dedicated staff. We are thankful to the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), Dominion Resources, the Richmond Memorial Health Foundation, the Community Foundation, the Greater Richmond Transit Authority, the United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg as well as the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation for continued funding support and guidance. We extend thanks to all of our donors, contributors and supporters. We are thankful for another successful Empty Plate Campaign and Luncheon as well as the Holiday Gift Basket Project for Seniors. We now look forward to our continued progress during 2013 and beyond. To support our vision of "greater community impact," our Board of Directors, Advisory Council and staff are implementing our new Five-Year Strategic Plan. As the designated Area Agency on Aging for our region since 1973, Senior Connections wants to increase visibility and awareness of our programs throughout the Richmond Metropolitan area. Thank you for your support and encouragement as we celebrate 40 years of service.
