SAIL holds inaugural event

By Staff | Oct 21, 2011

Over 50 people attended the first social gathering of members and volunteers for Shepherdstown Area Independent Living (SAIL) on Saturday, Oct. 1, at the home of board member Tom Miller and Donald Leslie.

President Vicky Thomas announced that SAIL had received notice of its tax exempt status from the IRS. As of Oct. 15 there were 46 charter members including founding members who have given at least $1,000. Strategic partnerships have been formed with a number of local organizations.

Shepherd University’s new Lifelong Learning Program has been launched, and SAIL is credited on its website (www.shepherdstownSAIL.org)?as the catalyst behind its genesis. SAIL thanks to board member Jack Young for approaching Shepherd and serving on the task force to make it a reality.
