Goodbye to Wolf! 
 
Over the past few years, the Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP) has placed volunteers with BCB to assist with daily tasks and to provide on-the-job training for their volunteers. BCB was fortunate to have Mr. Wolf Griffey with us for nearly four years, providing office assistance and greeting our guests and consumers when they visit or call our offices. Wolf is at the end of his time with this program and has decided to take this last month to focus on finding a permanent position. As he moves on to new endeavors, we wish him well and would like to thank him for his membership and dedication to BCB.
