KIM’S KORNER MAY 2019
May is Older Americans Month. This year’s theme is “Connect, Create, Contribute” and boy do we embody that here at Shelby Senior Services, Inc. There is always something going on here at our office and the Horizon Centers in Shelbyville, Waldron, Morristown and Fairland. Any time that you drop by any of these locations you may see seniors, volunteers or staff busy doing these three things.
We have several opportunities daily to “Connect” with others at the Horizon Centers. We have congregate meals served daily where people sit and talk about what is going on in their daily lives. We have several other meals that are served along with programming such as Shepperd Brothers and the Over the Hill Gang, etc. There are times to learn while here also. We are having Spanish, German and Sign Language Classes coming up this month, just to name a few things. We also have programs for Caregiver Support and Health and Wellness that could help you connect with services that are available to help meet your needs.
We have several opportunities daily to “Create” with others at the Horizon Centers. We have many different Lunch and Learn programs, painting classes, crafting classes, knitting classes and stained glass classes, just to name a few. If there is something that we are not offering that you would like us to consider, please don’t hesitate to contact Activities Directors at the Horizon Centers; we would like to offer more of what you are wanting.
We have several opportunities daily to “Contribute” to others at the Horizon Centers. There are many volunteer opportunities that you can choose from — we have Friendly Visitors, volunteers at the desk to sign people up for programs and help answer questions, Gleaner’s Senior Food Truck, Hands at Home Projects, and too many other opportunities to list. Please feel free to contact Buffy Powers to get connected to a project that suits your needs and interests.
As you can see here at Shelby Senior Services and Horizon Centers we are trying to achieve what the meaning is in the moto on a daily basis. If there is anything we can help you with to participate in one or all of these, please contact us at Shelby Senior Services, 1504 S Harrison St, Shelbyville, IN 46176, 317-398-0127 or at www.shelbyseniorservices.org. We look forward to seeing and talking with each one of you.
