Eldercare seeks nominees for seniors for a day

Staff reports

The Carson Valley Eldercare Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting creative and innovative services to the seniors of Douglas county, announced its second annual “Senior for a Day” project. All children, relatives and friends of seniors over the age of 65 may submit the name, address, phone number and whether the senior is male or female to Carson Valley Eldercare Coalition, P.O. Box 667, Minden 89423.

In a random drawing, two males and two females will become the Seniors for a Day. They will be treated to a day of pampering, lunch and gifts.

All letters submitting names for this special event must be received no later than Nov. 30. Winners will be contacted in early December, with the special day planned for Dec. 10.

Items for this project have been donated by Petrello’s Pony Express, where the special Seniors for a Day luncheon will be provided for the winning seniors and members of the Eldercare board of directors; Laurie Barrera of J.C. Penney’s Styling Salon in Carson City; June Gallagher, Avon, Minden; The Manger Christian Book Store, Carson City, Sandy Shupe, owner; Debbie Mullarkey of the Ranchos Hair Company in Gardnerville; Lori Britton, A Wildflower Florist; Coast to Coast Hardware of Gardnerville; and many others.

Over the past few years, the Eldercare Coalition has been responsible for the printing and distribution of an annual Senior Services Directory, sending hand-made birthday and Christmas cards to all Meals on Wheels recipients, donating 48 hose extensions to seniors, a serving cart, television and television stand to the senior center of Douglas County, as well as contributions to the Douglas County TRIAD and the Douglas County Food Closet.

The most recent projects were presenting new American and Nevada State flags to the senior center and a fall clean-up program.

“These projects are funded with income from directory advertising, an annual rummage sale, hosting events such as the recently opened Carson Valley Residential Care center and the Sierra Place Residential Care center and, of course, donations from the community,” said board member Elaine Agnason.

All earnings received are put into a reserve for our on-going projects. All services are provided to seniors free of charge.

For further information, call Agnason at 782-7282.
