Campo YMCA Focuses On Keeping All Ages Active And Engaged

The Campo Family YMCA is pleased to welcome Angela Fulgieri as its new program director of senior health and well-being. In this role, Fulgieri will work with the community’s ever-expanding active older adult population, helping grow current offerings while also developing new and innovative senior programming.

Angela brings with her a wealth of experience having served as the wellness experience director for the Plant City Family YMCA for the past two years. Her time at the Plant City Y resulted in new community partnerships, increased member retention and expanded personal training. Prior to that, Angela began working for the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA years ago as a Welcome Center representative, group exercise instructor and wellness coordinator.

“As we age, it is increasingly important to stay active and exercise regularly,” said Fulgieri. “From group exercise and pickleball to potlucks and chronic disease prevention, the Y is committed to providing fundamental health and social activities that contribute to older adults living a healthier and more fulfilling life.”

She will work with the YMCA of the USA and institutional experts to develop an overarching strategy to serve the local senior population. With Fulgieri onboard, the Campo Y team is eager to expand its positive impact in the Greater Brandon community.

Dove Interior Owners Participate In Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers 5K

Each year, Dove Interiors Carpet One participates in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K in New York City, supporting and bringing awareness to this cause.

The race retraces the steps of Stephen Siller, a FDNY fireman who was off the day the call came in on 9/11. Stephen put on his 60 pounds of gear and ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he and his entire battalion perished that day.

This foundation builds smart homes for our catastrophically wounded veterans, first responders and their families.

Joan and Kim, mother and daughter owners of Dove Interiors, joined the race in New York City on September 29.

Dove Interiors Carpet One will be participating in the local Clearwater 5K on Saturday, November 2 as well. Anyone wanting to participate should go to 2019 Tunnel to Towers Clearwater to register.

Dove Interiors remodeled its showroom at the end of last year and decided, rather than sell a container full of its office furniture, to donate all of it to the Mary & Martha House.
