Our Donors Say....................
I am happy to join with others to raise funds for our new Longmeadow Adult Center. We will provide financial support for furniture, fixtures, equipment and expanded programs not covered by the construction budget approved by the Town Meeting in 2018. Late in 2020 we will have a new building that will meet the needs of all residents, especially the aging population.
Congratulations to you and your team on a successful capital campaign for the Senior Center. It is a much needed facility and I look forward to using it. We have had the privilege of living in Longmeadow for over 50 years. A new Senior Center will enrich the quality of life for many of us, and we are most grateful for your efforts to make this happen. Thank you.
I donated to LACCF because I have long felt that Longmeadow senior citizens would be much better served by an updated, 21st century adult center. Funding is needed to assure that is what we get and that is a major reason why I contributed to this fund.
We supported the Adult Center from the time it was just a gleam in some folks eyes. Now, our family's planned major donation will forever be in memory of my beloved Cindy who unexpectedly passed away in January of 2019.
I was delighted with the opportunity to make a contribution to the new Longmeadow Adult Community Center Fund. This new facility will have a positive impact on the daily lives of our large older adult population.
As a youth athletics coach and senior mentor for Longmeadow's competitive robotics program, I understand the importance of having the right space for the right event. I support the new Longmeadow Adult Center as it will make a lasting impact on our community and provide residents with a special place to gather, learn, and build memories.
My wife and I feel so fortunate to be a part of this community. Every day, it's obvious that it would be impossible to raise our family well without the help of dedicated teachers, other parents who coach and mentor our kids, and civic-minded volunteers who make Longmeadow a better place in a multitude of ways...And, although the strength of any community is derived from its people, not its buildings, we hope and believe this building will be a unique and beautiful space that will promote the kinds of activities that bring people of all ages together. That is why we feel privileged to contribute to its success.
I am honored to be able to direct my support for the new walking track at the Longmeadow Adult Community Center in memory of my husband, William Joseph McCann, an avid race walker. Bill began race walking at age 65, became a successful competitor in the National Senior Games, and encouraged others through his motivational speaking and as a member of the New England Walkers. Our family's gift will continue his legacy.
