Keeping the Southlake Senior Activity Center Beautiful

If you’ve ever walked into the Southlake Senior Activity Center in Legends Hall at The Marq, then you’ve noticed that there are always beautiful fresh flowers.

The Senior Center strives to create world-class experiences for its members, and a beautifully decorated facility is just one way to meet that goal. However, Senior Center staff are not the only ones that take that mission to heart. Our breath-taking blooms are provided through an in-kind sponsorship from Trader Joes. The beautiful flower arrangements at the Senior Center are the creative masterworks of volunteers and members Flora Alviz, Norma Cruz, Dora Li, Chisato Louden, Susan McKinley, Marilyn Monigold, and Koko Schuh.

Those who subscribe to the Senior Center’s monthly Newsletter would have noticed the lovely section dedicated to these volunteers. These are the women who work together to keep the facility looking its best. Each lady has her favorite aspect of the Southlake Senior Activity Center. Dora’s favorite part is the welcoming environment and caring people. Chisato said she is “happy to meet friends, attend classes, [and enjoys the] nice staff and beautiful facility.” Flora also loves the volunteer and exercise opportunities, while Norma says that her favorite part is “being able to join the exercise and art programs.”

Caring and engaged member volunteers are one of the reasons why the Southlake Senior Activity Center is the premier destination for seniors 55 and better. We are proud to have such talented and invested members!

Next time you are at the Senior Center, take time to appreciate the flowers!
