Dear Wexford County Council on Aging Friends:
The Senior Expo was a huge success again this year. I’d like to give a big thank you to our staff, volunteers, vendors, sponsors and the Wex for helping make this a wonderful event!
We created a new award called the Distinguished Senior Award that will be given each year at the Expo. This year’s award sponsors were Airway Oxygen and True North Community Services.
This year we chose two recipients; Mr. Floyd Kanipe and Ms. Gertrude Boven.
Mr. Floyd Kanipe has volunteered many hours of service towards the WCCOA new building project. He has been present at the job site at least twice a day for the last six months. He has also driven over 5,000 miles related to this project. This is just a small piece of what he does for this community.
Ms. Gertrude Boven has volunteered as piano player for the weekly church services at Samaritas, aka the Lakeview, for over 30 years. She has also been the activities organizer at Harborview apartments.
Thank you both for your service to others.
We hope to see you at our Open House on July 14th from 2 pm until 7 pm.
