A few dates to remember in December

Happy Birthday to all celebrating Birthdays and Happy Anniversaries

                The Senior Center will be closed December 25 and 26. Also December 31 and January 1.                             MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

A senior has more than once mentioned, we should change the name of the senior center to the “social center”. It is a place to have a great meal and to socialize with old and new friends.  So please welcome those new folks and in turn they will become old friends, too.
