Happy Summer! This year, the June solstice occurs on Wednesday, June 21, marking the astronomical first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The June solstice occurs when the Sun travels along its northernmost path in the sky. This results in the “longest day”. More daylight for us to enjoy outdoor activities. I hope you all have plans to make the most of the summer months.

We had our "one, two TEA" party on May 19th and my thanks to all the volunteers who worked to put it together for us. Lots to look forward to this June. Check out the rest of the newsletter for more information and plan to attend.

I want to address any member questions concerning our recently developed Member Code of Conduct for the Senior Center. Many of you may not be aware that our previous Bylaws included sections regarding member conduct. The Bylaw Committee reviewed the bylaw document last year and updates were approved by the membership in November. Part of the review included a recommendation to develop a separate Code of Conduct. The Board of Directors approved the Code of Conduct at our recent meeting. The Code is a guideline for the Center to assure a welcoming and friendly place to socialize, learn new things and participate in activities.  The guidelines are intended to provide an environment of safety, mutual respect, and comfort for all Senior Center members and guests. If you need a copy of the Code, the office staff will be happy to provide it for you. It is also available on our website under the Bylaws section. If any member has a concern or question, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to discuss.

Hope to see you enjoying the many activities at the Senior Center.

Sharon Brzoska, President

It is time to renew your membership for 2023. We encourage you to renew and invite a friend who might be interested in joining.  A 2023 membership form is available on our website under "Forms" or at the Center.  Membership cost is still only $20.00.    We have a lot to offer in the way of activities, special events and programs. 


When the weather is bad please call the senior center after 7:30 AM and listen to the voice mail message  before venturing out.  The voice mail message will indicate if we are closed.   The best way to find out if the senior center is closed is to call first (610-265-4715).
