The Helen Welch concert raised much-needed funds that will help us continue providing programs and services such as home-delivered meals, housekeeping and personal care assistance, respite care services, and so much more – all with the goal of helping keep older adults safe, healthy, independent in their own homes. On behalf of the staff of Perennial Park and the many older adults we serve, I want to thank Sen. Shirkey, Rep. Leutheuser, and the many sponsors that made this event possible. The generosity of our community never ceases to amaze me.”The concert featured singer Helen Welch, an internationally acclaimed vocalist, entertainer, producer, and band-leader. Her most recent tour is a tribute to the music of The Carpenters.For more information on other local events in our area, contact Rep.
