Silent Social News
October's Silent Social was enjoyed by eighteen members and four new comers; Robert Perez, Cassey Bennett and Shirley and
Ken Bower. We enjoyed a delicious potluck lunch and a yummy cake provided by Parks and Recreation. (thanks to Mike Watkins) Everyone
enjoyed themselves as they spent the afternoon, socializing and eating! Dorothy Holloway was sent off with a gift from
the club as well as some gifts and cards from other members. We all wish Dorothy and her husband, Ken, a safe and pleasant
move to their new home in Tennessee.
Leadership of the club was turned over to Becki Lorden, who has been assisting Dorothy for the past year. If you have
any questions regarding our Deaf Club or would like to volunteer in next years planning you may reach Becki at home phone:
410-893-1666 or email: email@example.com.
A small but enthusiastic group attended the November Silent Social. We had a good time socializing and playing games
while waiting for our speaker to arrive. Visitors, Sharon Grzanka, Disabilities Coordinator for Harford County and Jeanne
Kushner, Senior Center Specialist from the McFaul Activities Center, attended and spoke briefly to the group about their services. Yvonne
Dunkle, Director of the State Office of Deaf and Hard of Hearing was our guest speaker. She shared information regarding resources
her office has to offer and gave out a bag of goodies to everyone who attended. Anyone with questions or concerns as to how
the State Office can help Deaf or Hard of Hearing may reach Yvonne Dunkle at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to check out
their new website at www.odhh.md.gov.
