The Active Adult Center (AAC) opened June 1, and the recreation staff are busy revamping opportunities. Recreation staff are excited to share these newly revitalized opportunities with the Active Adult Center patrons, as well as getting to enjoy catching up with everyone they’ve missed during the pandemic. It’s time to celebrate, rekindle old friendships and find out what’s new!

Meet the staff

Tiffany Skoglund, recreation supervisor for the Active Adult Center, has been with the city of Greeley for 20 years. Born in southern California, Skoglund moved to Windsor when she was 14 years old. Married to  Cory, and proud mother to their daughter Taylor, a junior in High School, Skoglund began her career with the City of Greeley as a volunteer. At the time, recreation staff were so impressed with her skills, they encouraged her to apply for the administrative specialist position. Shortly thereafter, she became recreation coordinator, and is now the recreation supervisor, in charge of the AAC operations. In her free time, Skoglund enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, camping, volunteering in her community, and having dinner with friends.

Sheri Lobmeyer began her career at the AAC in 1991 as a recreation coordinator. Over the last 29 years, her job duties changed, she became the recreation supervisor, then the recreation manager. In March she came full circle returning to the position of recreation coordinator, where she could be fully focused on what she loves most, working with the senior population. Born in Boulder, Lobmeyer has lived most of her adult life in Fort Collins. Her husband, Bruce and their 100 pound Old English Sheep dog named Winston, enjoy traveling to the lake in the summer and to the mountains for skiing in the winter. Lobmeyer is passionate about working with the 50+ group and is extremely excited about this new position.

Kim Euresti, customer service representative, is the newest employee with the Active Adult Center. Euresti joined the team at the beginning of May and has many years’ experience in the customer service industry. Born and raised in Greeley, she lives with her husband Leroy; they have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren whom they spoil all the time. Euresti brings professionalism, patience and lots of energy to the position and will make sure our 50+ customers’ needs are met in a manner consistent with the AAC high standards. Euresti enjoys spending time with her family, watching her grandkids play sports, and family BBQ’s when she’s away from work.

What’s New?

We know many of you may be looking to getting back into volunteering for your community. They’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to give back. Helping prepare meals for Weld County’s Friendly Fork Nutrition lunch/dinner program and assisting with the library are weekly jobs that always need volunteers. And if you have a little talent, Keenage Singers and the Sunshine Band welcome new members all the time! Inquire at the guest services desk for details.

As we begin to open back up, we’ll be looking for your feedback too! We’d like to know what kind of programs and classes you’re interested in, as we begin to plan for the future. Guest services will be collecting your suggestions. Be sure to complete the program request form and share your ideas.

When you enter the Active Adult Center, you’ll be thrilled to see some modifications to enhance your safety. Skoglund has taken operations seriously and will be ensuring that the facility will be safe for all customers. She’s been busy adding Plexiglas at the front desk to protect patrons as well as staff. In addition to sanitizing on a regular basis, facility workers have done a thorough cleaning in the building prior to reopening. Social distancing will be followed, whether playing games or participating in one of the many drop-in activities available.

Your health and wellbeing are important to us. That’s why we’ll be offering blood pressure checks by nurses from The Bridge Assisted Living. Blood pressure checks will be held on July 7 at 10 a.m. Be sure to stop in and check your vitals!

Look for more to come in the coming weeks and months. We’re so happy to be back in business!
