OUR “YOU’VE BEEN SPOTTED” FUN CONTINUES….
We were happy to “catch” our volunteer driver, Kathleen Haynes, in action this month. Kathleen has provided 16 years of dedicated service to the seniors here in Howard County. She is pictured her with client Gene Somers.
With the help of client, Gwen Davis, we were able to “catch” driver Anne Farese as the two of them returned from an appointment. Anne is celebrating one year as a Neighbor Ride Driver.

NEW NEWSLETTER FEATURE
At the suggestion of a volunteer driver we are going to provide a new monthly feature in this newsletter headed “Notes from the Road”.
If you have a tip you would like to share with our drivers please email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Andrew’s starting our ” Notes” off this month with the following:
Drivers can now access Whole Foods from Neighbor Ride without having to go out on Little Patuxent Pkwy! The road is extended in front of the old Clyde’s parking lot into the Whole Food lot.
When someone is showing signs of dementia, it’s time to talk. Join Winter Growth and the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Maryland at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, June 21st as they discuss tips for addressing some of the most common issues, such as driving, going to the doctor, and legal concerns. The program will be held at Winter Growth | 5460 Ruth Keeton Way, Columbia, MD. Light refreshments will be served. Please register by emailing: email@example.com.
