After eighteen dedicated years, our senior bus driver, Sharon, has announced that she is ready to retire. We knew this day would be coming and we have been dreading it!! Sharon has been the most caring, compassionate and helpful bus driver possible. Sharon has been a wonderful friend to our senior citizens and will be greatly missed!!! Sharon gave her two weeks notice last Friday but has agreed to stay until the end of July if it takes that long to secure a new bus driver.
Thank you Sharon for all you have done and are doing for us!!! As much as we hate to see you go, yes we will actively look for a new employee. This position offers 25 – 30 hours a week, requires a CDL, Background Check, CPR Certification, a Safe Driving Record and a good disposition with the elderly.
Applications can be picked up at the Kuna Senior Center, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 – 1:00 pm.
It is that time of year again to be thinking of elections in September to fill two Executive Board Positions and two Board Positions. The positions that will be open are President, Secretary and Board positions two and four. To be eligible to run, you must have been a member of the Kuna Senior Center for one year. If you would like to run for one of these positions, be sure to put your name on the nomination list which will be on the front desk at our center beginning in July.
