Halloween Greetings

It’s Halloween!  In honor of this special occasion, we’d like to share a festive display made for us by a Volunteer Transportation client:
It's a full-sized poster featuring all of the Halloween standbys, as well as Tweety Bird and Daffy Duck.  Amazing!

The text reads: Dear Cindy & staff, We really appreciate the rides you have provided for us throughout the year.  The drivers and your staff are so courtous [sic] and caring.  Hope the poster isn’t too scary.”  --The Caplan’s
The artist of this creative masterpiece is 85-year-old Meyer Caplan, who regularly receives rides from our volunteer drivers with his wife, Doris.  It must be noted that Meyer used no stencils or tracing paper to create these whimsical cartoon drawings; they were all carefully drawn by hand and patiently colored with impeccable precision.  Meyer says, “When you retire and you don’t have anything to do, you go nuts!  This has become my hobby.  I’ve been doing it for quite a few years now.”  He sends out similar posters to family and friends for all holidays and birthdays; he even reports that we can expect to receive another unique artistic message for Thanksgiving.  We can’t wait!
Meyer and Doris are very grateful for Volunteer Transportation.  He adds, “The drivers are so caring and just wonderful people.”  We are happy to display his token of appreciation in our office.

Our staff is lookin' good!

On that note, we wish you HAPPY HALLOWEEN from all of the “jolly jack-o-lanterns” at Senior Services’ Transportation Program (including “Chief Pumpkin,” Cindy; Lead Scheduler, Donald; Eastside and West Seattle Scheduler, Amy; and South King County Scheduler, Kailan)!
