There will also be a brief business session. Executive Director Jane Nyce and Board President Tom Ferguson will speak about Staying Put's accomplishments in its three-and-a-half years of existence and discuss the future direction of the organization.
Membership now consists of 297 individuals representing 219 households. Last year, more than 1,700 requests for help were addressed and members enjoyed a social calendar of 80 specially planned events, with transportation included.
"We are encouraging all our members to invite friends to this meeting -- a wonderful opportunity to learn first-hand the benefits of joining Staying Put and how our more than 100 volunteers contribute to our wonderful community," Nyce said.
"Members and friends will also hear about new ways to make Staying Put even more meaningful in their lives," Ferguson said.
