On Thursday, October 21, and Friday, October 22, volunteer, Susan Connors, assisted the lunch program participants with painting pots and then planting their own flowers inside of them. This activity was so much fun, and everyone enjoyed showing off their crafty side. It was a blast to plant flowers together and show off the green thumbs of the lunchtime group!

On Tuesday, October 26, Senior Services held a seminar focused on Health Literacy: How to Read a Prescription Label. Gardner Webb student, Karen Adams, shared insightful tips and tricks, do’s and don’ts, and so much more when it comes to reading a prescription label. One important tip that participants all learned was that they should always make sure their name, date of birth, and address are accurate before accepting the prescription. What a wonderful wealth of knowledge shared on Tuesday!

As Tuesday continued, Carol Yow came to Senior Services and taught a fan-favorite class: Jewelry Making with Carol. This class focused on creating a bracelet or necklace for the Halloween season. Participants came together and enjoyed fellowship, laughs, and so much more while working on fabulous take-home jewelry to enjoy for years to come. Some participants even had enough beads to make an additional bracelet to take home to their grandchildren. It was so wonderful to see all of the creativity amongst the Senior Services participants!

On Wednesday, October 27, Senior Services held Senior Games Field Day at Davie County Community Park. This event was to broaden horizons and expose folks to less-participated Senior Games events such as Badminton, Croquet, Discus, and Shot Put. A few favorites, Bocce and Horseshoes, were also included. Senior Services would like to send out a special thank you to Davie County Community Park for hosting the event, Heidi Day with Bermuda Village, Luke Harris with the Davie Family YMCA, Aaron Thies with the Town of Cooleemee, John Bullins, and Mike Orsillo for serving as our experts for the games and sharing tips and tricks for each event.  So much fun was had and confidence was built for the upcoming Senior Games 2022 season.
