President’s Point

November 1, 2014

The leaves are falling faster now and the winter Camellias - Snowman (white) and Interlude (pink) are sprouting their winter blooms that will last through December. As we begin to think about Thanksgiving, I want to thank a great team of professionals and the best support group in north Florida. Everyone at Elder Care is quietly celebrating another successful Oktoberfest while knowing full well that we’ll all be hard at it again with Elder Elf just around the corner.

Our 16th Oktoberfest was the third for Amber and me and by all measures, three is truly the charm. In spite of all the activities taking place in town that weekend, with none bigger than Saturday’s College GameDay and FSU Seminoles’ contest with the Fighting Irish. In spite of that, we were able to sell all of our tickets and enjoy another wonderful evening at one of Tallahassee’s most enchanting venues, Mission San Luis. A very special THANKS to all of YOU, our loyal sponsors, supporters and volunteers for making this year’s event the most successful ever. We set a new high water mark in 2012, bettered it in 2013 and surpassed last year’s record-setting pace, clearly making Oktoberfest one of Tallahassee’s premier fundraising events.

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and again thank you for all you do to help us improve the quality of life for our seniors.

With warmest regards,
