GARDENING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We’re getting ready for the new season. Wanna help? The garden at the Senior Center is designed to provide delicious, nourishing, free vegetables for our elders over the growing season. Volunteers are needed. On Tuesday, April 4 at 8:30 a.m., we’ll begin carting away all the depleted soil in the eight 3’x8’ beds. To volunteer, please leave your name and email address at the Welcome Desk or email [email protected] During the week of May 15, there will be a “planting event” to put in seeds, vegetable plants, and some flowers.
POP MUSIC: “A Journey through the Roots of American Popular Music,” presented by John Waterman, “is a program of songs, stories and a slide show presentation about characters and events at the origins of the blues, rock, and country music.” Please join us at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 31, for this presentation. Call the Senior Center to sign up.
UNDERSTANDING MEDICARE: Here’s a workshop designed for you if Medicare is on your “to do” list? Don’t delay, come to the Senior Center on Friday, March 27 at 11 a.m.
THE YELLOW DOT PROGRAM: Yellow Dot is a free program which provides first responders with quick access to critical medical information about the occupants of an automobile in the event of an accident or health emergency. Participants place a Yellow Dot Decal on the driver’s side rear windshield of their cars. In the event of an emergency or accident, the Yellow Dot alerts emergency responders that inside the glove compartment there is an envelope containing the operator’s medical information. The envelope has the operator’s medical conditions, allergies, recent surgeries, medications, and emergency contact information.
Join us on Thursday, March 9, at 1 p.m. for a presentation from the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office.
ACCEPTING DONATIONS: If you are doing any winter reorganizing and cleaning out of basements we are accepting donations at the Senior Center! We DO NOT accept shoes, clothing, furniture, and electrical appliances!
SENIOR DRIVE-BY LUNCH PROGRAM has been discontinued until March/April depending on the weather.
