By Kim Lytle 928-427-6347
Service Area Ambassadors:
To help with communication, advertising, and increasing participation at the YRCC, we have invited several people in our area to serve as Ambassadors within our region, which includes Yarnell, Glen Ilah, Peeples Valley, Congress, Kirkland, Skull Valley, Wilhoit, and surrounding areas.
Please welcome our newest SAA's. Peg Page: Congress, Glenda & Mac McBrayer: Wilhoit, Joyce Dennison: Walnut Grove and JerriLea Hoft: North Ranch. If you would like to be a Service Area Ambassador for your area, contact Michelle Jacobson at email@example.com or 614.353.4271.
Above and Beyond. We could not do what we do without our incredible volunteers. This month, we want to highlight those that truly have quietly gone well beyond what they signed up for! Bob Banning who worked prior to, during, and after the Country Fair and has made the physical labor of moving and rearranging things for us look easy! Carmen Graham who beautifies our thrift shop, and to Brenda Sherwood who does whatever we ask of her including helping clients wade through bureaucratic applications for needed services.
We have several new ones to introduce you to. Stacy Drennan with her vision and attention to detail has joined Donna Twiggs and Brenda Sherwood in transforming the barn, which holds our glassware and linens. Tim Simpson has joined our Saturday team to add some much needed muscle to that day.
Congratulations to Steve Spence and to all the support people on his campaign! Participating in the Honorary Mayor's race, sponsored by the Weaver Mountains Chamber, gave each candidate the opportunity to raise funds near and dear to their hearts. Everyone wins, yet one person gets to wear the badge!
We are happy to have raised over $6,500.00 to support Meals on Wheels and thank everyone for contributing to this worthy cause.
Thrift Store Shopping: Furniture discount days: The 3rd weekend of every month will be 50% off furniture. Shop early and often! Bag day is Nov. 17 and 18. We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. We appreciate donations to our thrift store, yet there are a few items we cannot take. Big tube TVs of any size and box springs and mattresses - no Thrift stores take these items anymore. Thanks for saving us time and money by taking those items right to the dump.
YRCC Newsletter: We started a monthly newsletter in September 2016, where you can get extra information such as our menu and calendar of events. They are available at the YRCC and distributed via local bulletin boards and our SAA's. If you are interested in helping us defray the cost and advertise your services and the same time, we are looking for some sponsors. Contact Kim Lytle for details.
Fundraising: We are never able to rest from fundraising. For the fourth quarter we will be offering items for raffle, including a beautiful mountain bike, a karaoke system and a HP printer. These items will be on display in our dining room. Raffle tickets will be available at the YRCC and everywhere you see Leah Tidey!
