MASS is Partially Funded by:
**IMPORTANT NOTICE**

We want to clarify........MASS IS NOT CLOSING!!!
 We have been hearing that the rumors are out there.

The stop-gap budget was passed on June 30th allowing us to continue receiving our federal funding. We have not received any state funding for over a year, and probably won't until at least January of 2017. We will be making some cuts in services that will hopefully be restored when state funding does come. More information is on the "Rayanne Says" page.

**OPEN LETTER TO OUR TRANSPORTATION CLIENTS**
June 29, 2016

To All MASS Transportation Users:

Effective July 1, 2016, Mendota Area Senior Services will be suspending the monthly Peru Mall shopping trips.

Due to the current budget crisis in the State of Illinois and the inability of our state officials to pass a budget, MASS’ Board of Directors voted to suspend the bi-monthly shopping trips until funding issues are resolved. If you are in need of transportation to the Peru area, please call the MASS office for other options. The board and staff of Mendota Area Senior Services are committed to keeping our vital services operational for as long as possible, but may be forced to make further cuts in the future.

We encourage you to contact your elected officials and let them know how necessary MASS services are to you and the area we serve, and that you urge them to find a way to end the budget impasse. MASS has available a listing of our area officials and their contact information for your convenience.

We apologize for any inconvenience the loss of these shopping trips may cause you. It is our hope that services will be restored in a timely manner.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,
Rayanne
Rayanne M. Sester
Executive Director
Mendota Area Senior Services
