Staff

Who do we call when we want to know when the yoga class is, where the napkins are hidden, what you should bring to the Christmas dinner? Who organizes the schedules and monitoring of special projects? That's Janette you call.

Who plans the future projects, makes sure the board has coffee for their meetings, what movie to play on Thursday afternoons, stacks the cards and games after game morning, answers the phone and still keeps greeting all with a smile? Janette, thats who.

Janette, a true Craigite with lots of family and friends here, has a backrground in management, is working on her nursing educations (which was iinterupted to be a caretaker for her father) and is also a massage therapist. The perfect person for the Senior Social Canter.

“I love this job,” Janette says. “I enjoy helping people and I love what the programs is growing into, there is so much it can be!”

So have an idea, or a problem or want to pay your membership dues? Call Janette.

Kathy Shae

I’ve been interested in Seniors and Senior issues in the valley for some time. I started back with Cathy Vanatta at the Legion hall with the Wellness Wednesday program. From there I took on being an instructor for the Living Well series, an evidence based program out of Stanford University. I earned a Master Trainer Certification, traveled the state for about nine years then jumped on the SSC board about 3 1/2 years ago. I love what I do here and have known a lot of these people for 30+ years. It’s a great team we being on the board/advisory board this year.

My desire to create more realistic and appropriate services for the aging population of Craig dates from the 1980s when staff from the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation DVR helped me to form and serve as volunteer leader for a low vision learning and support group which the members (mostly seniors) named VizAbilities. This grew into a paying job for me. For nearly ten years I served as an itinerant low vision teacher for northern Colorado

Gail Severson

I moved with my family to Craig in 1975, the start of the coal boom. We had a supply business and the coal companies suggested we get into the mining supply business. Craig was a shock, still tying horses up at the Cosgriff Hotel. I thought I’d moved 20 yrs back in time. I was lonely so I started a newcomers club and began making friends. I jumped into volunteer work serving on several boards until I went to work for the Chamber of Commerce as their director in 1979. Today, I choose to live in Craig and am very proud of my hometown. The Senior Center is my main focus. It’s a wonderful
organization for active adults.

Lois Wymore

I came here in 1978, fell in love with the view as well as the amazing people around me. My passion has always been education and I volunteered in several ways during the past 30 years at CNCC serving on the taxing district board twice. As one of the founding members of the Senior Social Center I wanted to help continue moving forward in helping find permanent gathering place for the older people in Craig and Moffat County to socialize, learn and grow.

Bill Booker

I came to Craig as a carpenter building the power plants and then stayed to work at the Craig station for 37 years. I retired 2 years ago and started doing volunteer work in different things. I have driven the Senior buss, delivered Meals on weals, am a board member of Love INC., and the Hope Pregnancy Center. I went on all five Western Slope Honor Flights, as a guardian, taking WWII Veterans to see their memorial in Washington DC. I love people of all ages, but work best with adults. I work with the SSC to help keep my wife and I busy and healthy. I think the SSC is a great organization and look forward to helping it grow.

Anita Reynolds

Anita is the Aging Well Program Coordinator with Northwest Colorado Health. She feels it is important to keep people aging well by exercise,wellness, and engagement with others on a routine basis. The mission of the SSC fits those needs and she enjoys being a part of this organization. Her grandmother was her role model, as she was able to live on her own until she died at age 90. She attributed her longevity with walking 2 miles twice a day, and staying connected with friends and involved in her community. We are all aging and SSC offers many activities to help us all stay involved.

Joanne Roberson

I have lived in Craig since 1985 with my husband Al, and son Devin and was a stay at home mom until my son started school. I started working for the Moffat County School District and was there for 23 years and recently retired. I am now employed at the Wyman Museum, which “I just love because I love history.”

I was involved with 4-H and was a leader of four different clubs. I also served on the Fair board eight years and handled the Queen program.” I’m an active senior in our community and look forward to working on the Senior Social Center Board as someone who wants to see our senior population in Moffat County be the best it can be.

Derrick Webb

I recently moved from Cheyenne to Craig. I’m currently the Director of Human
Services at MRH and I’ve been married 16 years and have six children, three girls and three boys. Our kids definitely keep my wife and I busy with sports and other school activities.

In Cheyenne, I have served on other boards and realize that being involved in our
community is an important part for any resident to be a vital member of that
community.
