Seniors want to also participate in events that are not necessarily improving them physically, but are socially stimulating. Now that we are retired and there are no more office parties big or small, the Holiday Gala is an event for which to look forward. Time to dig out your best outfit, jewels and show-stopping shoes to attend the affair of the year. Great music, substantial food, raffle items and photos reminiscent of your prom days! It’s a night to remember! One can buy tickets individually or a group can purchase a table. The Leschi Community Council has been purchasing a table for several years, as it is part of our mission to support the Senior Center.
The Center also holds a monthly birthday lunch for seniors. The birthday folks enjoy a free lunch and some have even purchased a table of lunches for friends to celebrate with them. The oldest birthday person is recognized; this is one setting where one’s age is revered!
Seafair offers another excuse to throw a party, as the view from Center is priceless. Again, there is music and the food is not to be believed; no one goes away hungry!
These are just a sampling of the activities offered at the Center. We hope to feature more in coming months.
