Greetings from the Executive Director

So many of our programs and services have returned in person thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteer team at the Senior Center.

We can’t wait to share with you what we have planned for this fall. You’ll find a mix of familiar classes and activities, as well as some new programs we hope you’ll try. Gentle Yoga and Tai Chi are back with new instructors, and we’re launching a Healing Touch service this month. You may want to test our Acting Class or join me for Walking Wednesdays here in the Junction neighborhood. And, we are hosting Game Day every Friday — a chance to meet up with friends and play board games or cards.

I’m excited to announce that monthly Birthday Lunches are back beginning in September, so mark your calendar to join us. And, we’re introducing a new monthly evening event in October — Piano Bar — featuring live piano music with Larry Knapp and friends. Get ready for unforgettable nights of ragtime, swing, blues and romantic ballads from the Great America Songbook.

We also invite you to join us for the Senior Center’s annual Fundraising Breakfast on Tuesday, Sept. 28. Due to the rise of the Delta variant, the event will once again be virtual this year, but will feature magician, Nash Fung. In addition to great entertainment, this is an opportunity to help us celebrate 50 years of service to the community and catch a glimpse of things to come.

I look forward to seeing you — either at the Senior Center, online at our fundraising breakfast or out in the community.

Stay safe,

Amy Lee Derenthal

We are a vibrant social gathering place for our community where people can find friendship, healthy activities and meaningful engagement as they age.
