Greetings Everyone,

I am happy to report that 2017 was an outstanding year for the Red Wing Area Seniors (RWAS). With all of the uncertainty in the world this past year, it maybe comforting to know that in our little corner of it, we continue to flourish and provide valuable services.

Throughout these last 12 months, we have made new friends, acquired several new members and many of our members renewed their membership (We currently have 826 members).

Not only did we make new friends we had a variety of new things happen. We had great new trips, started fun new programs, held new events and some new donors provided enough money to continue serving seniors in Red Wing and surrounding area. Not to mention, an exciting new partnership with the City of Red Wing as the new landlord at our Annadee’s Thrift Store building.

Along with new “things” we conquered a big hurdle and updated the “old.” With help from 436 members returning their ballots we were able to update all of our organizational By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation. As many of you know this provides a very solid foundation for our organization to move forward into the future.

As I reflect back on 2017; I am extremely proud of the work we have done together and all we have accomplished. I look forward to 2018 with excitement about what the upcoming year will hold for our members, volunteers and staff. In 2018, I will be working to secure funding that will allow us to finish our walls, so that they go to the ceiling and provide noise cancelling upgrades for all of the rooms. Also, for 2018 we have some exciting trips and events planned. Annadee’s Thrift Store and our Pier 55 Gift Shop will continue to be valuable programs that not only generate revenue to RWAS but also provide numerous valuable benefits to members of the community.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

In service,
Kim Wojcik, Executive Director
