Mike Naylor - Center Coordinator
Acquired purses from various political officials and other well known people
- purses were filled with various items then numbered & name of person that
donated the purse was placed on the purse. People bought tickets to get into the
event where there were also food items served. The purse were auctioned off &
the center made $3,000.00.
Time and Manpower
Some of our cooking staff prepared a variety of tea sandwiches & other food
items. Some of the other center Coordinators helped serve. The center Supervisor
& the Director also helped. The event was all done in about four hours in one
day but that is not counting the time it took to gather the purses. They even
had a purse from the Governor's wife.
Signs were placed all over town & at the County Office Building & the County
Courthouse. It was advertised in the local paper.
There were people of all ages in attendance. Helped make younger people
aware of the programs for seniors.
The connection with being a County Agency helped the center make many
contacts with all the state & local political figures when acquiring purses.
Impact On Center
People in the community & in the County all became aware of the Senior
Center & its value to the community.
Need to have real go-getters on your team when you put this event together.
The center was lucky to have other center staff help with this event. Need
really good helpers.
