Seniors appreciate support from community

This seems to be the perfect time to reflect on and to give thanks for the abundant outpouring of support that was generated by so many to the senior citizens in Howell last year. The generosity and compassion exhibited by individuals and organizations went far beyond our dreams and proved once again that goodness prevails in our community.

In this fast-paced, technologysavvy society, it was refreshing to witness the people who cared enough to share their time, talents and finances with the older adults in our township.

Special thanks to the Howell PBA, Southard Fire Department No. 1, the Howell Women’s Club, Howell Elks Lodge No. 2515, the Howell Chamber of Commerce, the Howell Sports Federation, Miles of Smiles, the Howell public schools, the Freehold Regional High School District, local senior citizen clubs, local religious institutions, the business community and the medical community for your ongoing support of and assistance with our senior center members, our Just in Thyme Senior Cupboard, our Meals on Wheels program and our Tangled Thread projects.

In addition, thanks must be extended to the many individuals in Howell, including our senior centermembers, for our volunteer hours, your donations and your endless commitment to both the older adults in our community and the community at large.

Blessings abound right here in our township. How privileged Howell’s senior citizens are to experience the generosity of so many and how grateful I am to witness the miracles created by each of you.
