Effective the end of May, Lillian Krukas has chosen to retire from the position of Program Assistant. She will continue to assist Cathy Drouin on Wednesday mornings when Cathy does the blood pressure clinic here at the Center. Lillian plans to take more classes at the Senior Center and hopes to continue the many friendships she has made during her 12 years in the Program Assistant position.
 
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Lillian for her service over the last decade. I am sure the members who have had the privilege of working with Lillian will miss her as much as all of us on staff. Lillian has been instrumental in supervising many groups and activities including the Friendship Circle and Quilting groups, arranging for special programs and entertainment, the senior picnic at Northwest Park and of course, her signature activity – the annual political candidate’s forum.
 
I am pleased she has agreed to stay on and work with the Health Department. I wish her and her family many happy hours in a lightened-up schedule!
 
Eileen Faust, Director
