3. JoAnn selected, and the Board approved, Community Service Awards to be given to two worthy organizations:

 

     a) C.C. Young: Life Enrichment Program

         The Life Enrichment program at C.C.Young helps bring meaning and quality of life to those

         who live at C.C. Young. The mission is to help residents remain connected to who they were

         before they joined C.C. Young, provide them with opportunities to engge in meaningful

         activities from their past, empower them to serve others and the community at large, and

         stimulate them mentally and physically to improve their health and quality of life.

         C.C. Young is located at 4847 West Lawther Drive, #100, Dallas, TX.

 

     b) Museum of Geometric and MADI Art:

         Art experts describe MADI Art as approachable, energetic and bright; a non-representational

         form focusing on geometric shapes, vibrant colors and viewer interaction. MADI artists direct

         attention to the object itself in a search for beauty. Presented in extraordinary formats, MADI

         conveys a sense of joie de vivre reaching beyond customary boundaries and media.

         The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art is located at 3109 Carlisle Street, Dallas, TX.
