As the end of the year approaches, I always think a simple “thank you” note to the community from the Enumclaw Senior Center will do…
Senior van, parties and classes, too!
Our parking lot is always full,
Some folks might call us a “zoo”!
But it’s important to point out
that all of this commotion,
This action, this service, this “to-do”
Is because of our volunteers, our community
Our service groups – well, really, because of you!
To all of our volunteers too numerous to list
We won’t mention by name so no one will we miss!
But thank you so much to those who prepare lunch
Setting places, serving food, what a hard-working and loving bunch!
Thanks to the volunteers at the desks
for answering phones and questions by the score
For all the help you offer
to those who walk through our door.
Thanks to Enumclaw Rehab for our martinis
and Highpoint Village for our volunteer brunch
Living Court for parties and boutonnieres and Cascade House for cookies and treats… the lists could go on
What an incredible bunch!
Thanks to the VFW Post 1949,
Our beautiful new American flag
With the correct number of stars – so fine!
Thanks to the Kiwanis, guys and gals to beat the band,
Who are here day to day to lend a helping hand.
Thanks to Enumclaw Rotary,
serving holiday dinners plate by plate.
And the big senior summer picnic
Hot dogs and hamburgers – sure are ate!
For those who help with programs,
and services by the score.
Thanks to those who teach our classes,
We couldn’t love you more!
Thanks to the community agencies
Who are there when we call in distress.
Answering questions, sharing support
You really are the best!
Thanks to Cindy who helps our veterans
Filling out forms and helping out in times of need
Our vets have served us well
To help them, should be our creed.
Thanks to all who gave
To this year’s Giving Tree
You made so many seniors happy
We wish their smiling faces you could see!
Neighbors Feeding Neighbors
Delivering hot meals to those in need
Shopping, cooking and driving
NFN volunteers are awesome indeed!
Thanks to the city gals and guys
Their support of the Senior Center they always show!
And thanks to the many youth groups
Your help is more appreciated than you could know!
Thanks to those who provide music
From Western dances to piano tunes,
And thanks to those who perform for us
From ballet to lovely ballads that we croon.
So with the best volunteers on Earth
In the best community we could ever lean,
The Enumclaw Senior Activity Center
Is looking forward to the next year
Here’s to the best in 2015!
