Staunton Senior Center: SSC enjoyed entertaining at Fall Harvest Festival
SSC was a busy place Oct. 20 as the Center entertained members from Waynesboro Senior Center and Churchville Senior Center at their Fall Harvest Festival. In all, there were over sixty seniors visiting for the morning and on into the afternoon. The first order of the day was coffee and socializing of course! At 10:30 the singing husband wife duo named Me and Martha (Martha Hills and Don DePoy from McGaheysville) rocked the Activity Room with their bluegrass style music, stories, and their smiles and laughter.
Ten JMU nursing students who were just beginning their four-week assignments at SSC and WSC arrived with energy and enthusiasm, assisting throughout the day by readying special additions to the luncheon menu and visiting with seniors. They delivered trays and wheeled carts with chips, drinks, and dessert to the members, serving them faithfully throughout the meal.
Eleven door prizes were given away after lunch, provided by the Centers and Baldwin Park. Also following lunch, members entertained each other with a Variety Show which included the reading of a poem, guitar, piano music and singing, a funny skit concerning weight watchers, and jokes and stories by Larry. Special guests included a local tap dancer and a special appearance by Tina Turner! What a talented group we have! Each member participating received a prize donated by Baldwin Park. Many thanks to all the folks who helped make the day a success; it truly was a team effort!
