Lunch and a Show: Lucille Ball Impersonator Arrives in Southlake

The Southlake Senior Activity Center is kicking it old school this week with a special Lunch and Lucy Show Picnic.

There’s no better time than April to enjoy the Spring weather now that winter is behind us. To bring in the new season, the Senior Center, in partnership with Southlake Library, will be celebrating the National Bookmobile Day on Wednesday, April 7. The Senior Center is inviting members to join them on the back patio of The Marq’s Legends Hall and the Aria Amphitheater lawn for a picnic lunch provided by Jersey Mike’s. The fun doesn’t stop there. Senior Center members can look forward to a hilarious Lucille Ball impersonator show!

Lucille Ball rose to international fame with the premiere of I Love Lucy in 1951. I Love Lucy set the standard for the American sitcom for decades to come. Its hilarious take on the cultural issues of the time, and emphasis on strong, female friendships, made I Love Lucy one of the most popular tv shows in history. The Senior Center is excited to be bringing the nostalgic humor of Lucille Ball to Legends Hall.

The Senior Center is always coming up with fun and creative events to involve Southlake’s senior community. From weekly wellness calls, the Monday lunch curbside pickups, and safe outdoor events, Senior Services Coordinator, Soheila Phelps, is always committed to bringing fun to Southlake’s seniors.

“Now that the beautiful Spring weather is upon us, providing outdoor programs where our senior community can safely get together is a step in the right direction in bringing some normalcy back into their lives,” stated Soheila Phelps. “We hope to bring more outdoor activities and programs like this in the coming months.”

Don’t miss out on the fun! Seniors 55 and over can grab their blankets and chairs, social distance, and join us on April 7! Advance online registration is required, and the fee to participate is $6.00. Lunch begins at noon, and the show goes from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. Register here.
