Tea and Time-Travel: Senior February Trips

There’s nothing our staff loves more than exploring fun places in the DFW area! This month, we have two exciting field trips for our senior members that are sure to be fun and educational!

Cooper Street Antique Mall: Friday, February 11
The weather was unusually chilly last week, and there is no better way to warm up than with a nice cup of tea. Join us from 11:30 AM- 3:30 PM for lunch at the Tin Tulip Tearoom! We will have time to explore the Cooper Street Antique Mall after lunch.

Texas Civil War Museum: Friday, February 25
Travel back through time to learn about one of the most contentious events in our nation’s history. The Texas Civil War Museum is the largest Civil War museum west of the Mississippi River. It maintains a comprehensive collection including military collections, domestic objects, personal items and artifacts, and postwar Victorian attire. The event fee is $6.00, the registration fee is $3.00, and members should bring money for lunch.

There’s no better way to create life-long memories than to participate in experiential learning with friends. We look forward to sharing these experiences with you!

Life-Long Learning at the Senior Activity Center

Albert Einstein once said that “wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”

Members of the Southlake Senior Activity Center would agree that learning is a lifelong pursuit. Summer has flown by, and this month Southlake Dragons are not the only ones hitting the books. The Senior Activity Center is hosting two educational seminars in August for our senior members. It’s never too late to learn something new or rediscover a favorite topic.

American History Seminar
History aficionados are in for a special treat on Thursday, August 12. Educators from Tarrant County College will be at the Senior Center from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm to present a condensed version of their American History lecture. Senior Center members will have the opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.

Technology 101 by Dragons for Seniors
Nothing is better than inter-generational collaboration. Dragons for Seniors students arrive at the Senior Activity Center to answer technology questions on Friday, August 13 from 10:00 am- 12:00 pm. Seniors are encouraged to register for a 30-minute slot and bring any device they would like to learn how to use.

Learn Then Lunch: Legal Seminar
If Law is more your style, then make sure to register for the Seniors Legal Seminar on August 17. Members of the McGee Law Firm will join our Seniors to present the 8 Costly Mistakes Families Make In Their Estate Plans from 11:00 am- 12:00 pm. This seminar will give you a complete picture of estate planning if you are interested in brushing up your knowledge of wills, trusts, probate, and more.

Learning never stops just because you are no longer in school. Senior Activity Center members know just how important it is to keep broadening their horizons, and the SAC is happy to provide our members with educational opportunities to continue their lifelong learning journey.
