Senior Department Stays Active

pic2The Senior Adult Department has been very busy.

For a long time, participants in the Senior Adult Program have been asking staff to organize a day trip to French Lick and West Baden, IN. On November 12, their wish was granted and 40 people took advantage of the opportunity.

Some of the participants hadn’t been to the area in more than 30 years, and they were delighted to see how beautiful it is. With a lot of free time and a convenient shuttle, the seniors enjoyed the great weather, visited the hotel, enjoyed lunch and ice cream and even a bit of gambling.

“Thanksgiving was really amazing,” said Senior Adult Programming and Cultural Arts Director Slava Nelson. About 100 people enjoyed a traditional meal, wonderful decorations and the camaraderie. They were also treated to a concert by Jennifer Diamond. Seniors were joined by a number of JCC staff members.

The Chanukah party on December 8, drew over 60 people, including about 10 people from the Chavurat Shalom program. At the Chanukah lunch, the seniors honored Senior Adult Director Diane Sadle, Slava Nelson and Nutrition Site Manager Natalie Kusyo, Mary Adams, Gerry Burns, Bill Doherty, Pat Gregg, Denise Joseph, Susan Kwasny, Frank Lichtefeld, Michele Mardis, Ron Peacock and John Thomas.

The department’s big annual holiday party is Sunday, December 20.
