Residents interested in helping seniors invited to upcoming training

The Neighborhood Association Council and the Wauwatosa Senior Commission are teaming up to provide older residents with a new way to obtain and share information with their neighbors. TETNA’s senior representative, Mary Cook, is looking for folks who might be interested in volunteering their time to be an important cog in their neighborhood’s workings, as a senior liaison.

There will be a training for all interested participants on Monday, Jan. 22, at a site yet to be chosen. Please call Mary at 414-870-3362 to let her know if you’d like to join the senior liaison team and take part in this training. This program will follow roughly the same path as the safety liaison program that the NAC has recently implemented.

All are welcome, though much of the information distributed will pertain to older residents.

Senior Liaison Program Description

The Senior Liaison Program is designed to create an environment of inclusion for all older adults that will encourage them to remain in Wauwatosa as they age. The senior liaisons will connect our older adults to the community: its people, its activities, its resources.

To accomplish this, each neighborhood association is recruiting at least one or two senior liaisons who will reach out to their neighborhoods’ older adults to make that connection. At the Jan. 22 training, they will receive information folders to distribute to seniors at neighborhood and citywide events.

This program will be a partnership between the senior liaisons and the neighborhood association. They will work together to tailor their efforts to the particular needs of the neighborhood’s older adult community. The Senior Commission will oversee this program and be an active partner in its support.


TETNA raises $1,000 in fundraiser at Metcalfe’s Market

Metcalfe’s Market Store Director Rich Lewandowski holds a jumbo $1,000 check with TETNA Board President David Paulsen to mark the close of the neighborhood association’s November fundraising partnership with the grocery store.

Tosa East Towne Neighborhood Association is grateful to Metcalfe’s Market for choosing us as its community partner in November.

Residents who used our coupon saved 5% percent on groceries all month, and Metcalfe’s matched that 5% with donations to TETNA.

The results are in, and we succeeded in raising the maximum of $1,000, which will be used to support the events and activities that TETNA brings to the neighborhood.
