Thank You from Brian

My time has come to an end here at Almaden Community Center. Over the last 3 years, I have worked with some amazing people and met some even better individuals. I will always cherish my time here, and the experiences I've had. I have worked in several different environments and this has to be the best! I will truly miss all the friendships I have developed over the years. I am confident I will be leaving you all in good hands. Amy is extremely energetic and passionate about working with Seniors. I wish this program the best of luck in its future. I would like to leave you with this thought, "It is not the years in a life, but the life in the years! = Abraham Lincoln. Continue to enjoy life for all that it is. Sign up for classes, try new things, exercise regularly, eat more healthy, make new friends...continue to live happily!

Your Friend,

Brian Hames
