On September 22, Southeast Seniors celebrated the year at our Annual Meeting. People gathered for a potluck meal organized by the Board of Directors. Marlene Stumm, from the University of MN Extension and Department of Family Social Science and author of "Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate," was our featured speaker. She talked about passing on personal possessions that are non-titled property. Her talk reinforced the idea that planning is a necessity as people get older and begin to downsize or move.
We also honored volunteers who have helped Southeast Seniors make a difference in our service area. We are very grateful to them for their service and creative energy. Honored this year are:
Community Service Volunteers: Jessica Lehrke, Karlie Weiler, and Yasmin Barak - University Of MN students who helped create our new Healthy Cooking for Seniors program.
Retiring Board member: Leona Reyelts
Volunteer Driver: Ardis Jacobsen
Lydia McAnerney, Vol. Coordinator
