The Annual Meeting of Olivedale Senior Citizens of Fairfield County Inc. is scheduled for Wednesday, March 31, 2021. As to not compromise health and safety due to COVID-19, Olivedale is adopting the proposed verbiage in Article VI of the By-Laws (listed below) so members can participate in Board Election. All active Olivedale Senior members will receive a ballot including proposed By-Law amendments via USPS. Ballots must be postmarked by March 24, 2021. Ballots postmarked on the 24th will be given seven days to be received before final count is conducted.
Ballot and Bios of Candidates
In view of Fairfield County’s COVID-19 numbers rising, the decision was made to suspend all Olivedale Senior activities as well as in-person exercise classes. Some exercise classes will go back to just virtual. Please note that the gym will remain open. We will be paying close attention to further instructions by the Governor next week. Olivedale and The Lancaster Parks and Recreation Department are disappointed that we are in this position but are supporting the Fairfield Medical Center and Fairfield County Health Department staffs in slowing the spread. We appreciate the work that our first responders are doing on a daily basis and are doing our part to advocate for them. Please wash your hands frequently, wear a mask and don’t congregate in groups over 10 people. We will remain in the office to answer questions or concerns. Thank you and stay safe.
To provide an atmosphere for friendships and feeling of connection with others for senior citizens of the community, learning through educational and recreational opportunities, promote wellness and social activities that encourage service to the senior center and entire community.
