MASS Fund Drive Needs Your Support
Bundt Cake  "Thank You"
We would like to thank OSF St. Paul Medical Center for the recent "Nothing Bundt Cakes" fundraiser they held to benefit Mendota Area Senior Services. The cakes are so delicious and sell out so fast! MASS appreciates the support we receive from our community partners, like OSF St Paul!

MASS is struggling to keep services at our current level. Federal grant monies are
months behind in coming to us, which means we are totally relying on our
generous communities to keep operating as is. We need your support!!! There is
a very real possibility that MASS will need to decrease services without your help.
This will affect our clients who have no one else and rely on us. We need to raise
$214,371 this fiscal year to meet our grant obligations. Donations are needed, can
we count on you? Large or small gifts, every dollar given is greatly appreciated.

Please consider helping us continue providing services for our aged and

On a little lighter note, isn’t springtime weather in Illinois a challenge? You never know if
we will have sun, rain, hail, tornadoes, snow, ice, or a combo of some or all! Springtime
at the senior center is a little different. We are warm (or cool), out of the elements, and
full of surprises and fun. We would love to have you join us. Check out our monthly
calendar as we have added new activities and continue with our tried-and-true ones.
We partner with OSF St. Paul to offer daily lunches, served at 11:30 AM Monday –
Friday. Check out the menu each month and pick a day or two that you would like to
have lunch with us.

If you are a user of our transportation services, you probably know how busy we are.
Our daily schedules fill up so quickly that we want to remind you to call EARLY if you
need a specific time for an appointment. We can put you on the schedule weeks ahead
so that you are guaranteed your spot. Remember, we don’t like telling you the schedule
is full and we can’t transport you as we love having you ride in our vans.
Please feel free to stop by the Senior Center and say hi. We always love to see you!

Have a wonderful spring (if it gets here) everyone!!
