Senior Services April Activities

Friends at Prom

April has been a great month for the senior center! The Senior Center participants have enjoyed a variety of activities.

On Tuesday, April 11, Christina Hurt, RN joined Senior Services for a presentation on Medication Management. At this presentation, she discussed safety benefits of knowing how to manage your medication, and she passed out lock boxes for medication so that participants could store their medications safely.

On Thursday, April 13, Cheryl Anderson from Robert’s Chapel joined Senior Services for the monthly bingo event where folks enjoyed a variety of prizes and bingo fun!

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

Susan Hawkins from the Davie County Cooperative Extension joined Senior Services on Tuesday, April 18 for the Springtime Gardening Seminar and Plant Exchange. This event was so much fun, and everyone learned much about gardening. Several got to take plants home with them such as petunias, ivy, and more.

Davie County Senior Services held their first Senior Prom on Friday, April 21 from 6-8 pm in the Brock Gym. The Mobile Jukebox joined them and shared dancing music throughout the night. The theme was Enchanted Evening and featured gold and black décor. The gym was magical and the seniors danced the night away.

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 over 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.
