    The building was Weymouth Country Club Grand Ball-room, the Beatles were four talented musicians known as The Liverpool Lads, and the attendees were true Beatles fans who came to hear their favorite music.

    The very convincing band members performing as the Fab Four were: Elmer Hyde as Paul, John Auker as George, Mike Thompson as John and Joe Koch as Ringo.

    The event, held April 14, was Sing Into Spring - I Want to Hold Your Hand - hosted by The HANDS Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the seniors in Medina County.

    Last year the HANDS Foun-dation spent $300,000 fulfill-ing Senior Wishes requests for local senior citizens. It is

    the hope of the Foundation that people will continue to support this worthy mission through sponsorships.

    Emcee Paul Stano, Elder Law Attorney, welcomed everyone to the festive gathering. He invited Linda Samosky to the podium to deliver a blessing of the meal, after which he introduced the youngest-ev-er HANDS Board President, Christina Waller.

    Waller told the audience the HANDS Foundation has ex-perienced many changes in the past year but assured the people its support remains the same. She commended Kathy Elseser and the com-mittee who orchestrated this years event; Board Vice President Joe Hanna pre-

    Waller also asked all past and present Board members to stand and be recognized. She said they exemplified the true meaning of a working Board. Current Board mem-bers are Waller, Hanna, Ryan Boulton, Rick Davidson, Bet-sy Fritsch, Ted Halkovich, Pa-tricia Hanek, Deb Lougheed, and Rebecca Rak.

    Before the sit-down dinner was served, Waller made two special announcements. First, she thanked the Bruns-wick Eagles for their ongo-ing, generous support; last year the Eagles donated $20,000 to the Founda-tion. Eagle President Sean Scanlon then came forward to present Waller with yet another check for $9,000.

    Following dinner Lori Betz paid a special tribute to the late Don Simpson, HANDS Founder, praising his vision that enables the Foundation to provide services to the el-derly population of Medina County.

    Stano then introduced The Liverpool Lads, and the musi-cal party began!

    Presenting Sponsors were: Plum Creek, A Senior As-sisted Living Community; Community Energy Advisors; Brunswick Smile Keepers; Forest Meadow Villas; Harbor Light Hospice; Danbury Se-nior Living; AccuScripts Phar-macy; Stifel Nicolaus; Jack and Alanna Arnold; and Fast Signs/Medina.

    Waller then asked Honorary Trustee Judge James Kim-bler to come forward for the second announcement, the recognition honoring two past Board trustees: Plum Creek Owner Dan Ihrig and Medina City Mayor Dennis Hanwell (who was unable to be pres-ent). Both men have gener-ously donated their time and talents to the Board.

    Judge Kimbler commended HANDS for their support of seniors and called it a unique organization that exists in Medina County to serve Me-dina County. The Foundation raises local dollars to serve
