Lets Make a Change! Word is getting out that Fountain Valley Senior Center is the place to be. We have new programs and our membership is growing. Thursday, June 16, is going to be “Make a Change” day. We want to continue to grow and ask that on June 16 you bring any loose change you have at home and we want to fill some buckets here at the center. This change will go to help support some of the programs that we are offering and help to start some new ones. Dig through that furniture, look under the cushions, vacuum out your cars, look through your junk drawer and bring in that change.
