The Friends of the Drop-in Center (DIC) is a non-profit incorporated organization. The Friends have been incorporated since 1979 and have a membership of over 200 seniors.
The Friends Organization aims to raise funds to help supplement special programs, senior trips, luncheons, and items for the Council on Aging department. The Friends also help supplement the Council on Aging (COA’s) newsletter mailing once a month.
Volunteers help with a variety of different tasks some of which include folding, and labeling of over 2200 newsletters monthly. Volunteers help with their annual Holiday Fair in December and Bake Sales twice yearly. The Friends are made up of a board of directors including a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month. Members discuss and vote on a variety of issues during these meetings. In the past the Friends Organization has been very generous in helping with purchasing tables and chairs for the Senior Center, equipment for the kitchen, and adding cabinets in the lunchroom.
