Note from Activities
May is Older Americans Month and the theme for 2022 is – Age My Way. The focus is on how older adults can age in place. Being able to stay in your home and live independently as long as possible is the goal. We want you to be able to remain and be involved in your communities as well. Regular visit to the Senior Center are great ways to meet new people, make new friends, stay active, keep your brain sharp and have fun.
