I was reading interesting facts about the month of June when I started writing this message. Here is what stood out to me.

We all know June 21st is Father’s Day, celebrating fathers and for our  age group, grandfathers. All important people in our lives deserve a day to honor their contributions to making us the people we have become.

June 20th is the summer solstice – the longest day  for us to enjoy. Let us get out there and enjoy the daylight. It is good for us! Think about planning to bring your lunch and sit with friends on the patio (weather permitting).

Listed in the “Just for Fun” category, June 1st is “say something nice”. I  hope we do not need to be reminded that saying “something nice “is something we should practice every day. I will start by saying “ I am happy to be a member of the Senior Center and have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful members.”

Coming up this month is our General Meeting on June 19th. Please plan to attend and find out more about the Board of Directors and all they are doing and planning to make the Center a fun place. If you attend the meeting, the Board invites you to stay for our annual member BBQ. The Center will be providing the food, drinks, and desserts, so just sign up to attend. Hopefully, our beautiful pati o will be open for your enjoyment.

A couple of our activities will be on hiatus during the summer months but will return in September. Looking at adding more activities in the fall. As a reminder, all members are invited and welcomed to participate in all activities, regardless of their skill level. Come join in something you have not previously tried. Let us know if there is an activity that would be of interest. We are always open to suggestions.

 Happy summer to all. Hope to see you around the Center.

Until next time,

Sharon Brzoska, President
