Senior Services Sets New Attendance Record
What a fabulous luncheon this year for Senior Services of Snohomish County! Not only did the stellar organization set a new attendance record of close to 600 people, but the luncheon raised more than $125,000 to help the many thousands of seniors (35,000) who live in Snohomish County, and depend on Senior Services meals, housing, transportation and many other programs to lead independent lives.
The Arlington High School Jazzmine Choir, led by Lyle Ford, performed several numbers, and were a highlight of this year’s luncheon! Thank you to Mr. Ford and all the choir members for sharing their talent.
A ‘shout out,’ too, to Janet Duncan, SSSC’s Development Director, and her entire staff, who put on a seamless program. It’s a testament to her organizational skills that the program happens every year without a hitch. The late CEO and Executive Director of SSSC, Phil Sullivan, was remembered fondly, and for the great work he did to bring SSSC to the powerhouse it is today. And Board President Dave Earling introduced the new CEO, Ray Crerand, who talked of continuing the great work Senior Services does.
As our population ages, these types of organizations will be more important than ever in our communities. And they deserve your support. Congratulations to Senior Services of Snohomish County for a job well done!
