"Sock Hop"

Thursday, February 12th    5:30 – 8:00 pm

Take a trip down memory lane, as we transform the Senior Center into a 1950s high school gymnasium to host a good old-fashioned “Sock Hop”. We encourage you to wear blue jeans, poodle skirts, and saddle shoes!

Our musical guests “The Revisions” are back by popular demand! They will be playing popular hits from iconic entertainers of yesteryear, including Buddy Holly, Connie Frances, Chuck Berry, Patsy Cline and Elvis, to name a few.

Our next Bingo Brunch will be held on Wednesday, February 18th at 11:30 am. This month’s meal of Lasagna, Tossed Salad and Garlic Bread is being provided by DeWolfe Place. Tickets will be available for $4.00 at the Transportation Desk until Friday, February 13th. We also encourage you to join us for a fun afternoon of Bingo beginning at 12:30pm.

Thursdays 9:30 a.m. – 10:00a.m.

Join Bonnie McKee from Kindred Community for some Mental Health fun! We all know how important it is to exercise our bodies to stay strong and fit, but most people forget just how important it is to exercise your mind too! Everyone is invited to join Bonnie for a donut and some orange juice while having fun trying to answer trivia questions together.
