Senior Center Monthly Highlights & Trips
What?! Someone’s
Leaving Us?
A Senior Center staffing change is
coming - Cinda Dye is retiring in
mid-July! Cinda started working
for the City of Milpitas 30 years ago
in the Finance Department. She
transfered to Recreation Services
14 years ago and has worked
the Front Desk as a Public Services Assistant at
the Senior Center, Community Center and Sports
Center. For the past 2 years she has been the
smiling face you see when you enter the Senior
Center. She’s not quite sure where retirement
will take her, but its almost a guarentee that she’ll
be spending a lot of time with her dog Maggie,
gardening and enjoying nature, and just being
“Nana” to her four grandchildren.
Please join us in saying thank you and wishing her
well on this new stage of her life. Oh, and if you
have any good advice on what to do when retired,
please be sure to let her know!
