General Mtg Time!

It's that time again! General Mtg this Friday at 10am.  There are alot of big decisions heading our way and we all need to pull together for the future of the Center. Without a unified group of supporters, how will Sierra Oaks continue? Sometimes we want things to change, but we don't want to act...Well I will tell all my years young, I have learned one thing....if you want something you have to fight for it!
So let's fight for our center!
I encourage everyone to put forth their best effort in making Friday at 10am a priority for yourself and your community seniors. See you all there!
