Senior Center activities kicked off April with a bang.

Senior Services started the month with April Fools Bingo, sponsored by Kintegra Family Medicine.

A group of volunteers from Kintegra ccalled out the bingo game, and enjoyed visiting with each participant. The grand prizes consisted of four invertible umbrella. Bingo will be back bon May 10, sponsored by Ellis & Newsome.

On Monday, April 4, Susan Hawkins from the Davie Cooperative Extension shared information about container and small space gardening. Hawkins shared information about what to do if trying to grow plants on an apartment balcony or in a small area. She even suggested varieties of bush plants that grow in containers and are easily transferred inside during the winter months.

The first Tuesday of each month means that it is time for Blood Pressure Screenings. If you have questions or need to have your blood pressure checked, be sure to swing by Senior Services at 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. This month, screenings were completed by retired nurse and volunteer, Linda Felts.

The first Thursday brings author, Marie Craig, for the Senior Writing Group. This group focuses on improving writing and allows for discussion about writings in order to engage in conversations. This group has a lot of good times and would love to have you join them each month.

To close out the beginning of April, Senior Services held its annual Easter Party. The party featured a great game of Easter Trivia and pictures with Michael Cottontail, the resident Easter Bunny. The party consisted of a fun vegetable tray that resembled a bunny along with a cheese tray that looked like a carrot. Additional snacks were chicken nuggets, bunny bait, and mixed nuts plus a cup of Cheerwine Punch. The table centerpieces featured wooden block bunnies made by Emily Miller. This party was fun and well enjoyed.

Weekly activities at the Senior Services Main Campus are still going strong such as Art, Quilting, Dominos, Woodcarving, Duplicate Bridge, Chorus, and more.

The Brock Campus weekly activities include walking, cheerleading, Zumba, Line Dancing, Yoga, Pickleball, and more. If you are interested in Karaoke and Dance, that will begin later this month.
