SPECIAL SENIOR - December 2008
The Special Senior Award was announced at the December social and recognized Frank Maas for his
significant contributions to the senior center. Frank has served on the Board of Trustees, as the Building
Committee Chairman, and the Transportation Chairman. In addition, he has helped serve the congregate
lunch, manned the receptionist desk, driven downtown to pick up calendars, and coordinated the advanced
table tennis group. Frank’s determination to keep the building project on the drawing board after Dwight
needed to resign as chairman helped lead to the construction now in progress. Exploring the transportation
issue involved many hours of work on Frank’s part and his efforts with both of these huge projects will
benefit members of the senior center for years to come.
