Davie Senior Services has been busier than ever, kicking off the summer season with so many great activities.

A Bunco Party was held on May 20. The folks had so much fun they decided to meet again the first Friday of each month at 1 p.m. at the Senior Services Main Campus. This group is open to anyone and everyone who would like to attend.

On the fourth Monday of each month, Senior Services offers What’s Cooking: Foods, Fads, and Helpful Home Hacks. On May 30, storing food and keeping things fresh was the topic. The fad featured a bag sealer.

Kicking off June events, Senior Services held its annual Golden Anniversary Luncheon for all couples that have been married for 50 years or more. The room was filled with joy and laughter as they enjoyed a catered meal and entertainment from Benita Finney and her son, Bradon. To conclude the event, each couple shared their names and how long they had been married. Several even shared tidbits of advice.

On Friday, June 10, Senior Services got into the summer spirit by starting the morning off with Chair Volleyball. This was the most fun and part of the morning congregate program. So many laughs were had and it was a great time for everyone who participated. Beach music was played to add to the fun atmosphere.

After lunch, seniors strapped their seatbelts and took off on an Armchair Adventure across the Continental US and Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. This featured facts about Hawaii, a video of the Hula, and delicious Hawaiian snacks such as Passion Fruit Bars, Hawaiian Chex Mix, fresh fruit, and a special Blue Hawaiian Mocktail in a take-home Tiki cup. To conclude the event, each person participated in the Hawaiian tradition of making a lei.

Next time, the armchairs will go to New York.

On Wednesday, June 15, Senior Services had a great afternoon with the 2nd installment of the Basket Weaving Classes. In structor Cheryl Tilley taught students how to make a Picket Fence Basket. The baskets were gorgeous and easy to make. Basket Weaving is an activity in SilverArts, and Senior Services would love to see every participant in the class join in for the awesome fun SilverArts competition for 2023.
