President’s Message Russ Levere
I hope all Regents enjoy a happy Christmas and Hanukkah, and may 2017 be an excellent
year for all!
Sadly, the holiday party was cancelled due to low turnout, and my hope for 2017 is that more
Regents will help with the operation of the Regents–we still need help in the kitchen for January–
Our program director and V.P. Mark Shapiro has scheduled great speakers for us–please help
out by suggesting speakers or topics to help him with a difficult job. Your Regents experience
will be enhanced by your participation–Please Volunteer!
Some of the Regents will head south for part of the winter, be assured that you will be in our
thoughts as we watch Connecticut weather reports which will probably include snow, ice, sleet,
cold winds, or all of the above. Stay warm, be careful, and have an enjoyable start to 2017!

pocket is held with a magnet on the outsi of the refrigerator and police and fire crews know to
immediatly check this kitchen appliance in the event that one is unconscious or unable to
RECEIVE YOUR FREE EMERGENCY PACKET AT ELMWOOD SENIOR CENTER DURING BUSINESS HOURS. You will have peace of mind knowing that medical personnel can more
quickly tend to your needs. THANK YOU, WEST HARTFORD FIRE DEPARTMENT.
