Events for the Not To Be Forgotten Foundation

The mission of Not-To-Be Forgotten Foundation is to acknowledge the struggles facing older adults in maintaining quality of life in their senior years and addressing those issues, one senior at a time, by way of public awareness, education and fulfillment of needs and wishes. The non-profit foundation will have 2 events this month:

1. 1st Annual Tea Party - May 2, 2009 10:30am - 12:30pm Villanova Conference Center 601 County Line Road Radnor, PA 19087Our Conscientious Acts of Kindness Campaign will kick off with a Tea Party during Older American’s Month on May 2, 2009. Our special guests will be members of the senior population in Delaware County who are invited to bring family members and friends. All groups in attendance must have a senior citizen (60+ years of age) as a member of their party. The Tea Party will act as an outreach program focused on connecting the generations, bringing awareness to senior issues and challenging the younger generations and the community at large to take a daily interest in those seniors whose lives cross paths with their own by making conscientious choices to assist seniors in their neighborhoods, in their communities and in their families with purposeful acts of kindness. For instance, bringing trash cans up from the curb on trash day, assisting in unloading a grocery cart at the grocery store, making sure their walkways are safe by shoveling their snow and/or raking their leaves.

2. 'PA'Ducky Derby - May 16, 2009 1pm - 5pm Ducks will be dropped around 4:30pm Governor Printz Park 101 Taylor Avenue Essington, PA 19029 ntbf is organizing a Duck Derby on May 16, 2009 as part of Delaware County Older American’s Month celebration. The Duck Derby and its related functions (a kick-off silent auction, duck adoptions, etc.) will act as ntbf’s primary fund raising activity for 2009. Individuals, organizations, companies and groups will be able to “adopt” a bright yellow rubber duck for $5 each. All adopted ducks will be tagged and dropped into the Delaware River at Governor Printz Park in Essington. Each derby duck will then race towards the finish line with a winning number attached to it. As a specified number of “adopted” ducks cross the finish line, they will be cross-referenced on a master list to their lucky “parents.” Prizes will be awarded to the winning ducks. In addition to the Duck Derby, ntbf will coordinate a day of family activities in Governor Printz Park on the day of the Derby.
