  • Lots of News!

    Please allow me to introduce myself - I am the new CAL Director, Mary! Hello to the those of you that I haven't met, and to those who have been actively using the CAL over the past few weeks! It's been a pleasure!

    I have lived in Worthington for 14 years with my husband and three children, who keep me extremely busy, happy, and well entertained with their extra-curriculars. Spending time with family and friends gives me a lot of positive energy, as does attending fun events and volunteering in the community.  

    It's been wonderful, getting acquainted with so many new people! In addition to meeting lots of active CAL members, I have been meeting with program instructors, facilitators and volunteers, the CAL Committee, City of Worthington IT, accounting and public works staff, Chamber of Commerce folks, senior dining and housing managers, vendors and so on! Please don't hesitate to remind me of your names, as I really want to learn all of them.

    Remember, my door is always open! Enjoy the CAL, make it yours, and always do your best to make aging fun...I'll do whatever I can to help make this happen!
