Serving the Klamath Community through Meals on Wheels
A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. We can’t do it alone. It takes all of us to keep the meals on wheels movement going. Call the Senior Center at 541-883-7171 to become a volunteer today!
If you or someone you know is in need of Meals on Wheels, please register with the Klamath Lake Counties Council on Aging by calling 541-205-5400.

Director’s Greeting by Marc KaneWe Honor Our Fathers This MonthOur cover this issue says it all about the value of good fatherhood. This piece of art was digitally created by our Health Promotion Services Manager, Anne Davenport. Please enjoy the article Anne presents on page 10 of the newsletter about the influence of her father and his living legacy that she carries throughout her everyday life. I hope that we all have an opportunity to celebrate fathers this month as Anne has suggested, whether they be biological or perhaps someone special who had/has a fatherly influence in our lives. I know this month is also special for me as I also carry many good memories of the great care my father provided to my three brothers and I. Thanks Dad!There is much happening at the Senior Center this month. Please note we always have a What’s New column in our paper to alert you of new offerings. Thanks to Bristol Hospice we will have a monthly birthday celebration every third Thursday beginning June 15th. Their staff will be present on these days and will be bringing a birthday treat for after lunch. Also on the same date is the annual Senior Empowerment Fair formerly titled the Elder Abuse Awareness Fair. While we continue to bring awareness of abuse, its effects and what can be done, we also want to emphasize all the positive resources and programs available to older adults at this fair. Please come join us.Twice each year we have what we refer to as the Bingo Extravaganza at New Year’s Eve and at mid-year. This year the mid-year extravaganza will be on Saturday, June 17th. This event and all our evening bingo games raise the funds that are critically needed to complete the funding of all our services. We gave special recognition this past month to the Breeden family for all the volunteer time and effort they have donated to these events and many other needs of the center. Please take note of the picture on page 14 of four generations of volunteer Breedens. We frequently state that volunteers are our foundation, but it might also be said that the Breedens have been the foundation of that foundation. Please offer your thanks if you see a volunteer here at the Center There is an organizational chart also on page 14 that emphasizes where our foundation lies. Volunteers outnumber paid staff by at least 5 to 1. What to volunteer? We have a place for you! See the article on page 5 introducing our new Volunteer Coordinator, Erica Dow. She will gladly help you find your purpose with us.As mentioned in earlier editions my days are numbered as our Executive Search Committee has narrowed the field of applicants and is now deciding who is to be interviewed for our Executive Director position. They are on track with the original goal of hoping to name my successor by July 1st. I will be staying on for a bit of time to orient the new director and hopefully to finish up the many capital projects that are currently under way at the Center.All Are Welcome Here!Please Join UsIn Our Many Activities and Services.To read the pages mentioned in the greeting above, check out the Active Seniors Newsletter at www.klamathseniorcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/Active-Seniors-June-2023.pdf ...

Consider filling out this survey as part of the Oregon Cooling Needs Study being conducted on behalf of the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE). The first 750 people will receive a gift card. The study is a response to the record-breaking heat wave that occurred during the summer of 2021. The heat wave and related deaths highlighted the issue of cooling access in Oregon. The study will be submitted to Oregon Legislators, who may use the information to make decisions on how to address cooling needs in the state.The purpose of the survey is to gather information from people living in the following housing types to understand their cooling needs:Publicly supported housing* (multifamily unit receiving rental assistance)Manufactured/mobile homesRVs being used as permanent dwellings*In a multifamily unit, such as an apartment or condominium, within a complex or grouping of five or more units that receive rental assistance.If you live in one of these housing types, you are eligible to enter to receive a gift card for completing the survey. This survey has 20 questions and we anticipate it will take about 10-15 minutes to complete. As a thank you for your time, we will be providing $20 gift cards to the first 750 individuals who complete the survey (if completed by June 9 th , 2023). The gift cards will be sent via the email address you provide in your response by June 23 rd . Please note - in order to be eligible for a gift card, you must enter your full name in the survey.By completing our survey, you will help us understand what the needs are for cooling equipment and resources in your community. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary, and you may choose to opt out at any time. All responses will be kept confidential and data from this survey will only be reported as a collective combined total. No personal information provided will be shared or held against you.If you agree to participate in this study, please answer the questions on the survey as best you can. Your feedback will play an important role in shaping the Cooling Needs Study and helping us identify the needs of Oregon residents. storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/b5d81320d62f46e084ee4d1c0134cf2c ...
