Another fun morning at the Center

Well, it has been a great week so far at the Senior Center. Trip to St. Joseph’s Catholic School for some Christmas cheer on Tuesday, a wonderful health education session yesterday with Julie Buffalo from ARMC, and today a great breakfast made possible by our own Site Council, McDonald’s (Prince Ave) and Arby’s (W. Broad St.).

During our morning munchies, the participants were treated with the always uplifting musical styling’s of Zeke Turner.  He had the house rockin’.

Later today we get ready to wrap gifts for Be A Santa to Senior.  It should be busy and fun.

Still to come…Be a Santa gift distribution, Holiday Tea at the Depot, Salvation Army Christmas Box distribution, and a trip for the center participants to the Athens Country Club for a wonderful holiday meal provided by the Club staff.

What a month!  Happy Holidays!

Today, our Senior Center participants had the great pleasure of traveling up the street to St. Joseph’s Catholic School to be entertained with some holiday cheer by the SJCS 5th graders.  We are glad we made it.  The kids were great.

We were treated first with piano duet by two very talented 5th graders, followed by a wonderful rendition of Jingle Bell Rock, complete with keyboards, snare drum, and recorder instruments.  The final song was a sing-a-long of students, seniors, and staff of the holiday classic Silent Night.  The participants had such a good time, and to think we almost had to cancel the day due to the bad weather.

The kids were originally were supposed to walk to ACCA and perform for us here.  Obviously, with buckets of rain coming down, that wasn’t going to happen.  The kids had been practicing and really wanted to perform, so we quickly arranged for the transport of our participants to go to them.  We were all glad we made it work.  The kids also gave the participants handmade Christmas cards which was really thoughtful and very much appreciated.

Thanks to St. Joseph Catholic School 5th graders, teachers, and administration for making it possible.
