Transition Dummerston and Dummerston Cares will host a potluck and discussion on Friday, July 28 at the Dummerston Center Church. 3 Generations Collaboration will be there to add our perspective to the theme of Meeting the Challenges of “Aging in Place.” Dinner starts at 6 PM, program starts at 7. Hope to see you there!
A flyer with full details is available here.
We send the 3 Generations Collaboration newsletter to those who opt in, and also to participants and collaborating organizations. LEt us know if you’d like to get the 3GC Update mailings. Contact info is at the end of the newsletter.
3GC connects youth and older adults through community service and volunteering in the West River Valley and adjacent areas.
The biggest news is that 3GC is now a stand-alone 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We will always be grateful to The Gathering Place and Mary Fredette for helping us get started by acting as our sponsor organization in the first year.
Our new status means that donations must now be made directly to 3 Generations Collaboration, not through our former sponsor.
We invite you to take a peek at the wish list on our web site, and look over the newest volunteer opportunities at www.team3gc.org .
Please share 3GC’s information with others who might like to participate. Another way to help us get out the word is to like and follow our Facebook page.
We’re trying to develop more ways for older adults to help youth, so if you have any ideas about that, we need to hear from you!
HOPE TO TALK WITH YOU SOON
If you’re interested in volunteering or getting help for your organization, yourself or a relative/friend, drop us a line, don’t be shy!
If you call our phone at this point you’ll hear a generic-sounding voicemail greeting, but don’t worry, it’s us and you can leave your message. We expect to have that fixed very soon.
Also we can sometimes be found at the Farmers Market in West Townshend on Friday evenings (thanks to the West River Community Project for allowing us free market space for outreach).
We love to talk to groups about what 3GC does, so let us know if you want us to come to your meeting or event.
Thanks so much for your interest and support.
