Plum Landing’s January Newsletter

Happy New Year!

Thank You From the Staff

I want to thank all of the residents who contributed to the Employee Christmas Fund. The employees who serve you throughout the year appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity, especially at this time of the year. On behalf of the entire staff, thank you! And have a Happy and Healthy New Year!!

Annual Appeal Update

I’m happy to report that we’re off to a good start with the Annual Appeal. We’ve raised over $6,000.00 so far from almost 50 donors! Thanks to all who have contributed. We’ve received contributions from residents and their families – past and present, employees and Board members – past and present, vendors, and friends of Plum Landing. It’s not too late if you’d like to contribute. Thanks everyone.

Silvestri Treats Trip

We will be touring the Silvestri Treats chocolate manufacturing facility in Geneva on Thursday, January 22nd. The cost is $4 per person and includes the tour and samples. You may want to bring some extra money in case you want to buy more on your own. Sounds like a fun and interesting trip, be sure to sign up at the Front Desk!

Mystery Lunch Trip

It’s time for another “Mystery Trip”. We’ll be going Friday, January 30th, leaving Plum Landing at 11 am. The ride portion will be about 30 minutes or so, followed by lunch at a secret location. You can expect to be back at Plum Landing around 2:00 pm. Be sure to sign up, and see Don or Kathy with any questions.

Emergency Contact Updates

Next week we’ll be delivering a copy of your current emergency contact list to you. Please take the time to review it and discuss with your family if needed. If changes need to be made, you may pick up a new sheet at the Front Desk. This sheet is extremely important in an emergency. Thanks.

Utility Tax Rebate Reminder

We have a lot of new residents this year, so I want to make sure to remind everyone to save your December 2014 electric bill so you can get the City of Aurora’s tax rebate when it comes out in a couple of months – usually April or May. The short explanation is that if you lived in the city of Aurora for all of 2014 (either here at Plum Landing or elsewhere), you’ll qualify for up to a $50 rebate on utility taxes you paid. Watch future newsletters for all the details. For now just be sure to save your December electric bill.
