Moni would not have approved

By

EDITOR:

My name is Yvonne Griffin. I moved to El Dorado Hills in July 2001 from Marin County and have never regretted my decision to retire in these beautiful foothills.
Moni Gilmore encouraged me to get involved and appointed me to a vacancy as secretary of the El Dorado Hills Senior Advisory Council in 2002. I was elected to the council in 2003 in the capacity of treasurer and remained in that position until 2006 when the Community Services District took over operation of what is now known as the Moni Gilmore Senior Center. In 2007 Moni established a new Senior Support Council and asked me to return to my duties as treasurer. Following Moni’s death in April 2008, I was appointed chair/president of the council and remain in that position to this day.
As you all know, Moni was an impassioned individual who served as a strong advocate for all senior services. I must say she must be rolling over in her grave at the possibility of closing the Senior Nutrition Program, which she had the foresight to bring to this community in the late 1990s. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that were she still alive, this would never be an agenda item before the Board of Supervisors.
I would hope to see the projects she initiated and changes she institued live on forever for our community.
YVONNE A. GRIFFIN
El Dorado Hills Senior Support Council Chair/President
