SourcePoint Invites Voters to Senior Services Levy Campaign Kickoff
Free Breakfast to Feature Fastest Flapjack Flipper in the World, Chris Cakes
PRESS RELEASE—The fastest pancake maker in the world will be in Delaware County Saturday, April 7 to kick off Delaware County’s Senior Services Levy campaign. The free event for all ages runs from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at SourcePoint, 800 Cheshire Road in Delaware, and is sponsored by the Committee to Save Senior Services.
The Delaware County Senior Services Levy will be on the May 8 ballot. The current levy expires in 2018.
“Come join us for fun, good eats, and grassroots community involvement,” said Bob Horrocks, SourcePoint executive director. “Our local seniors want to remain living safely at home, and with the continuing support of Delaware County voters we’ll keep providing older adults with healthy aging and prevention-related services, such as Meals on Wheels, in-home care services, family caregiver support, and more.”
World-renowned Chris Cakes, in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest flapjack flipper, will provide the good eats, including pancakes and sausage. His company has served four presidents and was featured on the Food Network.
In addition to flying pancakes at SourcePoint, Delaware County residents can learn more about the Senior Services Levy, pick up literature to share, and yard signs to post. SourcePoint is seeking approval May 8 for a five-year levy consisting of a 1.2-mill renewal, which is the same amount voters approved in 2013, and an additional 0.1 mill to meet the increasing demand for senior services from Delaware County’s rapidly growing population.
For the past 25 years, SourcePoint, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has worked to promote healthy aging and to help older adults in Delaware County remain living safely and independently in their own homes. For more information about the Senior Services Levy, visit SaveSeniorServices.org.
The Senior Service Levy Kickoff Breakfast hosted by the Committee to Save Senior Services at SourcePoint (formerly called the Council for Older Adults) in Delaware drew hundreds of people in 2013 to enjoy free pancakes and to learn more about the senior services levy campaign. The current levy expires in 2018 and will be on the ballot May 8 for voter approval for an additional five years.
