WOW!   How did it get to be September so quickly.  As we look forward to cooler weather and all the wonderful colors of fall, let’s remember to appreciate what nature brings us in every season of the year.

We have had a busy summer including the ice cream social recognizing all “seniors” on National Senior Citizen Day. Special thanks to Marion Wilkinson and Chris Pappanastasiou who volunteered to head up the committee. Many other members were involved in the celebration, and they all deserve our thanks. As I always say, we couldn’t do anything without all our wonderful volunteers.  We are also very grateful to Wegmans and Giant for their support with generous gift card donations.

Don’t forget to sign up for the “Mocktails and Appetizers” party on September 14 from 4:00-6:00 pm.

Coming up is our biggest fund raiser for the Center.  Big Bingo will be held on Sunday, October 22.  Plan on attending and bringing some friends.  Also, think about volunteering to help make this a successful event.

I saw an interesting quote and wanted to share it:

It’s the friends we meet along the way that help us appreciate the journey.

I hope many of us have those special friendships in our lives. The Senior Center offers all of us an opportunity to make new friends to enrich our lives. Take the time to meet and talk with someone new. That person may need a new friend to help them appreciate their journey. That could be a “win-win” for both.

Hope to see you around the Center enjoying our activities and special events.  Happy Labor Day.

Sharon Brzoska, President
