Junior Leader Update – November 22nd, 2016

Thanks to all of you who attended last night’s special meeting! Hopefully the Colors program helped you learn a bit more about yourself and others and you will put it to use in your interactions with others. VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO ASSIST IN HELPING SENIOR CITIZENS WITH TECHNOLOGY! Please reply to the poll at http://doodle.com/poll/yxkx5pwt65ktq5yp to help us get a date set and then read all the details toward the bottom of this message!


  • Meetings are always the third Monday of the month at 7pm in the upstairs meeting room of Expo East (unless announced otherwise).
  • Participate in Angel Tree Shopping – Tuesday, 11/29/16 from 5-6pm. Meet just inside the bakery side of Valpo WalMart.
  • Isabel volunteered to get us a family to shop for. Isabel, please email that to me as soon as you have and if you’re attending shopping, take it with you there too! 
  • Service on your own: send a card(s) to someone who could use an uplifting note this holiday season. Ideas include a senior citizen in your neighborhood, nursing home residents, or here are two ideas that I’m going to do…



I am seeking volunteers to help teach smartphone/tablet stuff to senior citizens. This is a great opportunity to volunteer while helping the older generation! Another adult volunteer or I will lead a session, but we’ve learned that it’d be great if we could have a helper for each senior!!

We’ve identified a few dates and need to narrow it down to one. Program would be after school, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at my office (155 Indiana Ave., Ste. 301 in the County Administration Building). If you’d like to be involved, please click the following link and let me know all dates that would work for you so that we can schedule the session. Respond here: http://doodle.com/poll/yxkx5pwt65ktq5yp. PLEASE REPLY BY THANKSGIVING.

If your name is on the following list, I’m counting on you! You indicated interest at last night’s meeting! ;-)  Mercedes, Kyra, Anna, Emma, Brooke, Shelby, Rylee, Peter, Brevin, Giana. THOUGH THESE PEOPLE INDICATED AN INTEREST, YOU ALL ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE!!

Thanks for your help with this important program! I’ll be in touch with the final date by Monday!
