Update on Carrollton Senior

Dave Power
 

Sorry, there is still no dancing or classes, the center is still closed.

However, they are working on planning to reopen as soon as it is safe. Joe has been contacted by Jim Rogers, the president of the Carrollton Senior Center Advisory Council (CSCAC).  In order to allow better communications with members they are putting together an email list of members. WE DO NOT GIVE OUR DANCE LIST TO ANYONE, so at their request we are emailing their request to all of the people on our list and asking you to send him your email if you are willing to be on the centers list. It is your choice, but we encourage it. His email follows:

This request is for a response from Carrollton Senior Center Members only.

The Carrollton Senior Center and I are trying to upgrade our email addresses for future schedules and 
announcements. In order for the Center to store and utilize a members address they must have
specific approval from the member. My request is for you to help getting that approval by forwarding
to your group this email with my address for their approval. They can then respond directly to me if
they prefer. If anyone has any questions please call me on 214 450 8420

Jim Rogers
CSCAC President

Therefore, if you are willing to have your email included on their list, please send an email with an "OK to include my email" as the "Subject" to Jim Rogers at email address: jimrogers555@...

The center remains closed with no information as to when it may reopen.

If you are in Dallas county, please be aware of the following:

6/19/20 Dallas County to Require Businesses to Enforce Use of Face Coverings for Visitors and Workers

Dallas County Commissioners voted Friday, June 19 to issue an order requiring Dallas County businesses that provide goods or services directly to the public to ensure all employees and customers over the age of 10 wear a mask or face covering. The new measure goes into effect at 11:59 p.m. Friday, June 19.


Although a strong recommendation until now per Gov. Greg Abbott's most recent executive order, the new Dallas County order mandates face coverings with a potential penalty of $500 for businesses that fail to comply. 

The order also states that all people 10 and older shall wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when in a public place where it is difficult to maintain 6 feet of distance between themselves and others. However, no civil or criminal penalty will be imposed on individuals for failure to wear a face covering, consistent with the governor's order. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urges face coverings for people over the age of two.


Stay safe and healthy,

Dave Power

Although many of the restrictions on what businesses and activities are permitted, nothing has changed with respect to the COVID-19 virus. We still do not have a good antiviral or vaccine so if you get COVID-19 you are no better off than back in February or March.

WHY WEAR A MASK?

Many people are careful to wear a mask when in public, and others do not. Why is it a good idea to wear one? Wearing a mask does very little to keep you from getting COVID-19. However, it is one of the most effective ways to keep you from giving COVID-19 to others... Studies are showing that up to 40% of all COVID-19 cases do not show any symptoms. So by not wearing a mask you are really saying that you do not care if you are one of the lucky people who do not have any symptoms and you are perfectly willing to give COVID-19 to others (by not wearing a mask). 

Please stay safe, stay well, and wear a mask in public,

Description: Hello all dancers.

Carrollton Senior Center is still closed. NO DANCE OR CLASSES!


Although many of the restrictions on what businesses and activities are permitted, nothing has changed with respect to the COVID-19 virus. We still do not have a good antiviral or vaccine. When looking at statistics, some of them are showing that as many as 40% of the people who get COVID-19 may not show any symptoms. This is of particular concern to those of us over 60. Although there have been many deaths for those with the virus who are under 60, there appears to be a major difference in the mortality rates. Again, they are still developing better statistics, but some have shown that those with COVID-19 who are over 60 may have a mortality rate 5 to 10 times greater that those under 60. If these numbers are even close, it means that without a good antiviral or vaccine we really cannot restart our dances... We will continue to track the activities (or lack of same) at the Senior Center and post them in our weekly emails

Please stay safe and stay well,


Dave Power

We are starting another month with the Carrollton Senior Center still closed. We need to be thankful that the city cares about us as senior citizens and is doing its best to keep up well by following the state guidelines on how and when to reopen. That being said, I STILL MISS DANCIING!

NO DANCE OR CLASSES THIS WEEK.


I hope all of you are safe and well. Hopefully a good antiviral and vaccine are not too far away so we can get back to our social dancing.

Description:

The dance and classes are still cancelled...

We have received additional information from the City of Carrollton and it is not good for us.  Joe received an email yesterday providing an update on what is happening with Carrollton reopening. You can read the entire city post at:  https://www.cityofcarrollton.com/Home/Components/News/News/3844/27 .  As you’ve probably noticed, that this time the Senior Center is not opening up. This is due to Senior Citizens being in the high-risk category. 

We will continue to send out updates as they become available. In summary, we will NOT have a dance this week and we do not have any information as to when the center may reopen and we might be able to restart dancing.

Stay safe and stay well,

Dave Power

I hope all of you are doing well as the Center remains closed.

There will not be any dances or dance classes during the month of April as the order to remain at home except for essential services will remain in effect until at least the end of the month. The Carrollton Senior Center remains closed.

The following message was received from the Center Supervisor:

Subject: City of Carrollton Senior Center update.

All-
 
I hope everyone is doing well and in high spirits.  Hopefully as we move forward from this, it will lead to an amazing summer!  The reason I am reaching out and emailing today is because everyone on this email are people who, not only lead or assist in programs, but have also played an important role in my knowledge, and experience in my growing career path.  I wanted to send this email out to notify this group that on Friday, April 10th, 2020 will be my official last day as an employee for the City of Carrollton.  I want to thank all of you for the privilege and opportunity that I was given to serve as the Carrollton Senior Center Supervisor.  I am sure I will still see or speak with most of you as I am not going too far away as I will be the new Branch Connection Manager for the City of Farmers Branch.  During this time I am not certain who the interim point of contact will be but if you have any follow up questions regarding the City of Carrollton Senior Center moving forward please email our Recreation Superintendent at Katy.Bower@.... Thank you for the role each one of you had in my journey and I wish everyone a safe and happy future in you and your families journeys.  Take Care!
 
Very Respectfully,
Jackie Byles
Recreation Supervisor

I know we will all miss Jackie, even if you have never met him. He has been great to work with and will be missed by all.

Stay in, and stay well. This will pass and we will be able to get back to our dancing!

Carrollton Dance Club Updates to Staff/Others

Renee Noto was one of our cashiers for many years (decades). Irv Rawlins has also been an active member for decades. I am forwarding the following email for all. Please keep them, and their families, in your prayers.

Another Angel in Heaven is watching over us - Renee Noto would have been 94 on March 27th. The Lord called her home on Sunday, March 22.  The Service was for family only.  I don't have details. Our dance club sent a beautiful Peace Lilly to Chery (her daughter)l and Family.  If you would like to send a card or flowers to Renee's daughter, Cheryl's address is:

Cheryl Swanson
1513 Travis Circle  S
Irving, TX  75038

I had the pleasure of singing along with Renee one night as I sat with her at the cashier's table.  We talked about going out and singing some karaoke  She had told me that when she and her husband were young, they went out to sing Karaoke, and her husband would proudly tell everyone "That's my wife".  When she went on cruises with family, including grandchildren, she would get up and sing "Crazy".   I would have loved to hear her sing that.

One of our long time dancers and WWII veteran, Irv Rawlins, is in a memory care facility in Irving.  Because of the Coronavirus, Sara cannot visit him, but they talk on the phone each day.  She could not recall which facility he is currently in.

If you would like to send a card to Sara and Irv, Sara's address is:

1803 Maxwell Ct
Euless, TX  76039:

Sara and Irv have been dancing at Carrollton for many years.  Sara was also a volunteer in the kitchen as well, for many years.

Please remember Renee and her family and Sara and Irv and their families in your prayers.

Joe and Dave both send updates out to let us know when we will be back on the dance floor.

Until then, God Bless each of you.
