Davie Senior Services kicked off April with Parkinson’s Support Group with a presentation by Kristin Eddy, neuropsychology fellow at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist. Her presentation was titled, “Cognition in Parkinson’s Disease.” This group meets the first Monday of each month.

The Theatre Club traveled to Sanford to see “The Million Dollar Quartet” and had lunch at Miss Lacy’s.

The history of Davie talk with Charles Crenshaw included different pieces of history.

UNCG Nursing School completed depression screenings and gave out information on how to navigate depression.

Senior Services visited the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer. The day was full of train rides, information about the railroad, and a meal at Hendrix BBQ.

A “Night Under the Stars,” the 2024 Senior Prom, was held on April 19 at the Brock Gym featuring “The Mobile Jukebox” with tunes requested from the crowd. Snacks and refreshments were provided. Several comments fwere that it allows seniors to experience the prom for the first time if they were not able to attend in high school.

What’s Cooking: Foods, Fads, and Helpful Home Hacks discussed fruit salsa. They made salsa with a variety of fruits and enjoyed it on a cinnamon Graham Cracker. This recipe is something fun and exciting for hot summer barbeques.

To kick off Spring, Senior Services held a Plant Exchange and Gardening Seminar with Susan Hawkins from the Davie Co-Operative Extension. This was a time to ask questions about preparing a garden.

Senior Services held a Spring Fling Puzzle Exchange where participants were able to bring puzzles in and exchange for something different.

To close out April, Senior Services held Bingo on April 30, sponsored by Skyline National Bank.

Upcoming events at Senior Services include Senior Health & Fitness Day on May 29, the Golden Anniversary Party for those of you that have been married for 50 or more years on June 7, and a Juneteenth Jubilee of Praise and Song Celebration on June 19.
