We have monthly Birthday Parties at the senior center where we celebrate all the birthdays for that month. We enjoy a special meal, along with live music, flowers, balloons, presents, and birthday cake. We usually have around 100 seniors in attendance. We have monthly Movie Days complete with popcorn, soda, candy and most often an ice cream treat. We watch good movies and enjoy a fun afternoon together.
