Sharon Williams has been the bus driver for the Kuna Senior Center since 1998. On Friday, August 1st, Sharon will be retiring but has assured us that she will be a back up driver when needed and she will still stop in at our center quite often to visit with all her friends.
Sharon has been a very dear, kind, compassionate, dependable and over the top employee for 16 years! Sharon has always gone way beyond her job description to help our seniors. We have been extremely lucky to have Sharon as part of our team!!!
On Wednesday, July 31st, we will have a retirement recognition for Sharon right after our noon meal. We hope that you can join us at 12:30 pm so you can visit with Sharon and have cake and ice cream with us.
Yes, we have hired a new bus driver and our bus service will continue as always. We were blessed with a grant that has enabled those who are age 60 or older and those who are disabled at any age, to ride our bus at no charge. For those under age 60 and not disabled, the fee for our bus service is $3.00 round trip within Kuna, and $6.00 for round trip into Meridian and Boise.
In order for trips to be planned, you must call (208) 880-0556 twenty four hours prior to when you need a ride. If you wish to go on our Field Trips, you must put your name on our sign up sheet which you will find at the centers front desk.
You do not have to be a member of the Senior Center to take part in activities and bus service. For field trips, members will be considered first for bus availability and non members will be put on a waiting list until we know how many seats will be needed.
If you wish to become a member of the Senior Center, see one of the ladies at our front desk. To become a member, you must be age 60 or older and pay a yearly $2.00 membership fee. .
