Wow! What a community we live in and what a way to end 2010.

Once again, this year the LOEL Center's Senior "WISH" Christmas tree received overwhelming support from our community (from Girl Scout Troops 2028/279/93, Lodi MRI, and many community individuals and families to seniors themselves). Seniors made a wish for Christmas and hung it on the tree. There were wishes from new jackets to new robes and slippers, for groceries or just a dinner out, and even help with their utility bills and Dial-a-Ride passes. You, this community, filled those wishes within four days!

It was the community that filled more than 80 senior wishes within four days. Each and every one of you knows who you are and we thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for helping make our seniors feel the true "Christmas spirit." Sometimes seniors are known as the "Forgotten Generation;" well, this year they weren't forgotten.

A special "thank you" to the best Santa and his elf team — Dennis Calton, Griffin and Spencer Schrenk, Terry Morgan, Daniel Arroyo, Dan Johnston, Suzy, Liz and Marj, who handed out each special gift.

On behalf of the LOEL seniors, staff and board of directors, thank you, Lodi community. We wish you and yours all the best in 2011 and look forward to another wonderful year!

Tracy L. Williams

President and CEO

LOEL Center and Gardens

    And thank you Tracy for all of your years of service to Loel Center. It sure makes it a lot easier to contribute to Loel knowing the funds/time are going to be well managed.
