Davie County Senior Services closed the holiday season beginning with Armchair Adventures – Christmas Around the World on Dec. 16.

Participants “visited” the Philippines, Portugal, Brazil, Australia, and areas of Africa. They made paper paroles which are to represent the Star of Bethlehem, watched videos, listened to music, and tasted food from each place.

Dec. 19-22 was Christmas Spirit Week and participants were asked to dress up each day. Each day was titled such as Merry Monday, Twinkle Tuesday, Winter Wonderland Wednesday, and Tree-mendous Thursday.

Santa Claus stopped by to spread cheer in Crocheting Class, Woodcarving Class, and even made an appearance at the favorite spot of the week – congregate bingo.

Senior Services closed December with New Year’s Bingo sponsored by Eaton Funeral Service and Benita Finney represented Eaton’s and called the bingo games.
