Welcome to the Hammond Street Senior Center

 
Dear Members and Friends,
 
The Hammond Street Senior Center Board of Directors met on April 28, 2016 to evaluate and discuss the fundraising progress that has been made over the past few months since the Center's closing.

Though many grants have been submitted and a few have been received, it is the unanimous decision of the Board to not pursue a further location for HSSC. The necessary funding in spite of the received grants and those still pending acceptance, is simply not adequate to provide the necessary financing.

This decision was made with deep regret and sincere wishes that the outcome would have been otherwise. Many thanks were expressed to our past supporters, sponsors, municipalities and donors and especially to our members who have had their lives touched in so many ways over the past sixteen years.

The remaining assets of HSSC will be distributed to local non-profits in the Greater Bangor Area that have a senior interest and focus. I personally want to thank you all for the many shared moments of love, laughter and even tears.... I have loved my job as Director of the Center and will sadly miss being a part of providing such a wonderful organization for you all. I wish nothing but the best for each of you.
 
Sincerely,
Kathy Bernier

I am very pleased and grateful to Hollywood Casino who will be a major sponsor in our re-location plan. They also will be offering additional help by gifting any new and updated games, cards and gaming supplies needed as we add to our popular and fun gaming offerings at the Center. The Bangor Elks Club are also new supporters.
Volunteers of America sends their thanks for coffee donations from our Center members who are currently playing bingo, spades and other card games at Miller Square. They are glad you show such a sense of fun while faced with challenges and say, "Bravo to you all for continuing to continue!"
There is a card playing adventure being planned up at Sky Lodge for the weekend of May 13th. These weekends have always been a well-loved part of being a member at HSSC. Please contact member, Randa Koczere at -852-8487 for more information or to sign up.
Members who wish to participate in a focus group to help the city of Bangor improve their community outreach methods, please contact me. Participants will receive a gift card upon completion of the focus group session.
We currently have 10 outstanding grants, two denials, two to be re-submitted and three soon to be submitted. I am searching every day for new avenues to pursue for granting opportunities. Your thoughts are always welcome.
Again, a huge thank you to the organizations who have stepped up and offered our members a place to continue their passions as we await the future of HSSC, it means so much to know that we live in a community that cares so much about the welfare of its senior residents.
As we wait for decisions to be made that will effect our future, it is important to remember that HSSC was there for us for 16 years and the many wonderful events, happenings and friendships are memories that can't be taken away or forgotten.
Sincerely,
Kathy Bernier

 
Dear Members and Friends,
It is so nice to have some of the HSSC members and friends stop in to see me or give a call to let me know how much they miss the Center and can't wait for it to be able to re-open. I see members and past members whenever I am out and about, whether it is at the bank, the grocery store or the mall.... I also love to go visit members where they are currently to give updates on what progress is being made. I want to thank you all for the many helpful suggestions, comments and well wishes for the ongoing process of seeking support through grants and sponsorships to meet our re-location goal.
