Honor Tommy Farr and Founders

May 31 @ 5:00 pm - July 1 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

In 1971, the Senior Connection started services for seniors by hosting a weekly lunch at the Miner’s Club. By 1982, Tommy Farr, WWII Veteran and current member learned that there were grant monies available, but it required the Senior Connection to be a nonprofit. What started as a weekly luncheon has grown into daily lunches and 9 other services and programs. To show our appreciation for the pioneers who contributed so much over the years, we will honor them by naming the fireplace at the Center. We will have 2 plaques; one with founders and the other with donors for this special campaign. We invite you during the month of June to help us raise $25,000 in honor of Tommy Farr and other founders. Gifts/pledges are due by July 1 for a special recognition at our Annual Donor Appreciation BBQ. We also welcome letters of favorite stories or memories of Tommy Farr; these can be dropped off at the Center, mailed, or emailed. (If you know of anyone who played a significant role in the early days of the Senior Connection, please contact E.D. Teresa at 208.788.3468.)
