The year 2012 is coming to its close,
Final reports and contracts are due-
Packing up paperwork and one last party
But wait… there is one more thing we must do!
The Enumclaw Senior Center is thankful
For all those who help thru the year
With programs, classes and services,
Who donate money, share a smile, & keep the cheer!
We are thankful to the service groups,
Who do so much for the elderly –
Lions Club who help with pancakes
And new glasses so folks can see!
Big thanks to the Rotary Club
Who help us all year long–
Holiday dinners, donations, summer picnic
With BBQ hamburgers, watermelon & happy song !
Thanks to the Kiwanis Club
For Food Bank help to seniors too
And the Helping Hand Fund
For the “Helping Hand” work they do!
Thanks to the individuals
Who just walk through the door:
And write us checks and drop off money
To help us do this service – we thank you all the more!
And thanks to those volunteers,
Who give of their time and of their hearts,
Who answer phones, and dish up meals
And wash the dishes and share their smarts!
Those volunteers who teach the classes
And those who visit the lonely and sad.
And those who play the music and songs,
That makes our Center feel so glad!
Special thanks to Plateau Outreach Ministries
For working with us hand in hand
Helping out those seniors in need-
In any way that they can.
How thankful to the City of Enumclaw
For recognizing the needs
Of the seniors in the City the way you do..
Nothing would be happening..
Without the City of Enumclaw
And what you do.
For those of you in town
Who took tags off the Holiday Giving Tree.
You gave a senior a gift…..
More than a gift, you gave them “community.”
Thanks to the Muckleshoot Tribe Scholarship
And Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation as well!
And to the Allegro Women’s Ensemble
Without financial support, a lot of things wouldn’t be so swell!
Oh “Thank you” Elvis and Neil Diamond!
For the Cherry Cherry” concert in the Fall!
And thank you to the Enumclaw Garden Club
For our beautiful tree – enjoyed by all!
Special thank to FOP
Better known as Friends of the Plateau
Who put on the Bite and Boogie
And donate to community- don’t you know?!
Simply Soup – oh who to thank
All those who make this work!
The community groups that cook,
The many volunteers that do not shirk!
For three years now, once a month
We gather ages – young and old
Bring your own bowl & spoon
And enjoy yummy soup- its never cold!
Neighbors Feeding Neighbors is new
Starting last February – we started to talk
And then on December 28th –
A group of community volunteers –
They “walked the walk”!
Neighbors will feed their senior neighbors
A hot nutritious meal when they can’t cook.
The only city in King County to do this-
WOW – our community spirit is showing,
If you just stop to look!
So, as 2012 is coming to a close
And a NEW YEAR is about to start…
Enumclaw Senior Center can only say
THANK YOU ENUMCLAW, truly, from the HEART!
