Applause for Senior Center
Our Methow Valley Senior Center takes care of us all! Thanks to our cooks who provide lunches for senior citizens as well as other members of our community at an affordable price. Volunteers offer a top-notch rummage room to provide clothing, books and household goods for sale. They support graduating high school seniors with college and technical school scholarships. There are many other services they provide always with a comforting smile.
But, what many of you don’t know is that they have provided tuition assistance to women and men in our community who have taken the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) fast-track class offered by Wenatchee Valley College. This program has been offered in Winthrop for four years during the summer and taught by Sheila Brandenburg. As a shout-out to all the volunteers in the rummage room, they collected donated scrubs and have passed them on to the students.
Everyone knows at least one volunteer at the Senior Center or on the board, and I applaud everyone one of them. Let’s keep supporting this wonderful organization that takes care of so many of us.
