A Message From The Director


Greetings!
Happy Spring! Thanks to all who helped in making our 10th Annual Dinner Auction Benefit fundraiser the a huge success! When all was said and done we raised $32,000 for our operations here at the center! Thanks to the many who donated cash or items, sold tickets, worked on a committee, or simply came and supported the cause. It is because of our great members willingness to help, along with a lot of dedicated volunteers and staff, that it is possible to reach our goals each year! Thank You All Very Much! So now its on to other events and activities for the remainder of 2014 like our Karaoke Day on April 30th and our Mothers Day Luncheon coming up in May, or our Summer Croquet League beginning in June! Whatever it is that catches your eye, I sincerely hope that youll come and enjoy all of the great things going on at Hillyard Senior Center! Lastly, congrats to our Drawing class (shown above) whos drawings were recently featured at the Spokane Interplayers Theatre ! Great Job Girls!
