Letter to the Editor
Thanks for Bucks for Buses support

October 02, 2013

Dear Editor,

We had a very successful Bucks for Buses has Gone Bocce III Fundraiser on Sept. 25 at Palazzo di Bocce in Orion. This event by the Friends of the Independence Township Senior Adult Activity Center raised money for our transportation program that takes seniors and disabled adults in Clarkston, Independence and Springfield Township to and from doctorís appointments, work, grocery stores and other places they need to go.

Our wonderful sponsors made this event extra special: Platinum Level Sponsor: Clarkston Medical Group and Waterfall Jewelers, Gold Level Sponsors: McLaren Health Care, Silver Sponsors: Lourdes, Pallotta Heating and Cooling LLC and Smith Disposal, Bronze Level Sponsors: All Saints Cemetery & The Preserve, Coats Funeral Home, Home Instead Senior Care, Lewis E. Wint & Son Funeral Home, Michigan Institute of Urology, Oxford Bank, State Representative Gail Haines, Susanís Hallmark of Holly and Vein Solutions/MI Vascular Center. Without the generosity of our sponsors we would not be able to offer our clients the level of service that we currently do.

Without the hard work of our committee members Dr. Tim OíNeill-Honory Chair, Collen Burke, Amanda Fogleman, Mary Melega, Brenda Marino, Mary Lou Schell, Lois Seddon and Nancy Wasilk, we would not have been able to have such a successful evening. We also appreciate all of the support the Clarkston Medical Group has given us for this event including our evening entertainer Dr. Michael Baker.

Special thanks to our Friends group members Carolyn Morrison-President, Lee Kuczmanski-Secretary/Treasurer, Pat Edwards, Joe Figa, Connie Hutchison, Don Kayko, John Lowell, Donna Miller, Jean Pachuta, Mary Lou Schell, Lois Seddon, Tom Stone and Mel Vaara for all of the fundraising they do for our Senior Center. They have been a loyal and dedicated group.

We had a fun filled night with fabulous food, music and bocce ball. Thanks to all of you who attended and supported this very special fundraiser for our transportation fundraiser.

Sincerely,

Barbara Rollin, director

Senior Adult Activity Center
