The Senior Center participants have enjoyed a variety of activities in April.

Christina Hurt, RN visited Senior Services for a presentation on Medication Management. She discussed safety benefits of knowing how to manage medication, and passed out lock boxes for medication so that participants could store them safely.

Cheryl Anderson from Robert’s Chapel visited for the monthly bingo event where folks enjoyed prizes and bingo fun.

On Friday, April 14 participants spent time at Crafternoon at the Davie County Public Library where they made Felt Ball Garlands and enjoyed fellowship with one another.

Susan Hawkins from the Davie County Cooperative Extension visited on Tuesday, April 18 for the Springtime Gardening Seminar and Plant Exchange. Several took plants home.

The first Senior Prom was on on Friday, April 21 in the Brock Gym. The Mobile Jukebox shared dancing music. The theme was Enchanted Evening and featured gold and black décor.

On Saturday, April 22, Senior Services SHIIP Coordinator, Michelle Ellis, grabbed her poncho and braved the rain for the 2023 KidsFest Community Shredding Event where more than 50 people were served. The Shred It truck will be back on May 22 at the Brock Gym for those who missed this opportunity.

Monday, April 24 folks enjoyed attending the What’s Cooking: Foods, Fads, and Helpful Home Hacks event where they talked about bananas. National Banana Day was April 19, so they celebrated by learning health benefits of bananas, as well as hacks to using all parts of the bananas. They finished the class by learning how to make a single serve banana pudding.

On Wednesday, April 26, a group came together and participated in Cards for Caring led by Tara Harper as an initiative to create cards for the homebound meal recipients. This event was so much fun and over 150 cards were made to bring happiness to each of the meal recipients.
