Cranberries at the Staunton Senior Center


Even though the holidays are past, it wasn’t too late to pull out the cranberries and hold a contest at SSC. Whoever most closely guessed the number of cranberries in the jar would receive a mystery prize the next day of Center attendance.

The idea was introduced from the Breakfast for Your Brain manual, pulled out recently by Program Director Lori Pullin searching for ideas for mental health fitness exercises. Along with the contest came several math pages which were photocopied out of the manual, all concerning cranberries and other types of berries.

Center members busily solved problems with their pencils and scratch paper, performing math that may not been done for quite some time. But then engaging in new and different brain-stretching activities is always a “plus” for the brain!
