On Friday morning, the Lebanon County Link partners’ network monthly cross-training meeting was hosted by Linden Village Personal Care Community.
We met Melissa, Linden Village’s Activities Director, and she shared the Pizza Box Art she’s introduced. Here’s a little news coverage from the Lebanon Daily News. Linden Village’s Director of Marketing, Janell Brandt, has promised to share more about this exciting program at an upcoming Link partner’s network meeting in a “pecha kucha.”
Yesterday, too, the Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources – Berks-Lancaster-Lebanon partners’ network had a display table at the Lancaster Activities Directors Association’s Bi-annual Spring Conference at Millersville University. Chris Gartman, Senior’s Blue Book and Link partner, volunteered to set up the exhibit and staff the exhibit. Teepa Snow was the featured presenter for the more than 250 conference attendees.
