The Senior Center was good enough to invite the Record Pilot staff over recently for an update on their facilities and activities and for a tour. Our calendar includes some upcoming events there that may be of interest. Also in this edition of the paper, you can read about the mural their members have been painting along with local students from the Youth Bureau.
The painting is aptly entitled Where People Meet. This is a wonderful example of how generations can bond and learn from one another. Having seniors local and active within the community creates a tremendous resource for everyone.
In this trying economic climate, one thing that readers might consider, both to occupy their own time and to help others, is volunteering.
Lucy Van Horn of the Senior Center said that right off the bat, they could use a few students or adults to teach basic computer skills. Even one or two hours a week would help if a few residents could sit down and instruct people on things like how to turn on the computer, write a letter or e-mail and use the internet.
Volunteers can call Lucy at 759-9610. If you are a senior looking for activities and company, call the Senior Center too.
