Timberville Broadway Senior Center was privileged to attend the Aging Gracefully Conference on Tuesday, May 7. The Aging Gracefully Conference is an annual event sponsored by RMH Senior Advantage. Eight members of TBSC were able to browse through the vendors, participate in some free health screenings and hear two presentations by local medical professionals. The overwhelming consensus was that the conference was very helpful and worth their time! This is definitely an event that TBSC will plan to attend next year!

Timberville Broadway Senior Center has had a very busy week that included an Open House to say thank you to the MOW volunteers. TBSC depends on volunteers from the local churches in Broadway and Timberville to run the Meals on Wheels route through the year. Reviewing the volunteers that had served over the last year, it was determined that there were roughly 100 people that needed to be invited! What an amazing commitment to the older citizens in the Broadway Timberville area!
