Celebrating National Senior Center Month at the Southlake Senior Activity Center

It’s all about our Southlake Seniors this September, as the Senior Activity Center prepares to provide a month-long celebration to our beloved members!

September is National Senior Center Month, and the Southlake Activity Center is ready to celebrate our 55 and better community! National Senior Center Month provides an opportunity to showcase senior centers and promote a positive image of aging. This year is a time of reflection and of looking forward, always staying mindful of the present. To start the celebrations, the Senior Center is introducing “Thursdays in Memory Lane.”

Join us as we celebrate history at the Southlake Senior Activity Center by reminiscing and revisiting the bygone decades. Thursdays in Memory Lane will be held each Thursday from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm at the Senior Center. Drinks, snacks, and fun surprises will be available! Travel through time as we explore the themes of the GI Generation, The Silent Generation, The Baby Boomers, Generation X, and the turn of the Millennium. Each week features a new 20-year time span. This program is free, but pre-registration is required.

Seniors also have the opportunity to continue learning through our signature Learn then Lunch program. This month’s seminars include Updates on Skin Cancer and Non-Surgical Cures by Hopkins Dermatology and Life Planning Seminar by Dignity Memorial. Learn all about aging skin and how to take care of it, and about pre-planning funerals, cremation, and cemetery property.

Don’t forget about our recurring activities such as Art Class, Duplicate Bridge, and Knitting Club. No matter what your interests are, there is a place for you at the Senior Activity Center!

There’s always something exciting at the Senior Activity Center, and we look forward to continuing to celebrate our members. This month, and every month, we are grateful to provide life-long memories to the Southlake Senior community.

Happy National Senior Center Month!
