News and Opinion from Sisters, Oregon

Sisters salutes - 3/3/2021

AFSC (Age Friendly Sisters Country) expresses a heart-felt thank you to John Griffith and Rendal Broomhead for their two-plus years of dedicated service to Sisters Country as founding board members and strategic leaders of AFSC.

We also wish to thank Sharon Thorkildson for serving as our first volunteer bookkeeper. Through their combined efforts, AFSC has become a viable nonprofit committed to launching grassroots projects that enhance the quality of life (AKA livability) in our community. This is how the STARS (free medical transportation service), and Sisters Villages (neighborhood based social/service) Action Teams got their starts. With a well-laid organizational foundation in place, Ren and John are stepping back from board responsibilities. We are so grateful for their contributions.

AFSC is happy to welcome Peggy Tehan as our new board treasurer, taking over the well-organized books that Sharon helped John set up. With room at the table, AFSC welcomes anyone with enthusiasm and a desire to contribute to explore opportunities by contacting AFSC at
