December’s Meeting Agenda:
While we will network, eat and enjoy our time together, we will also finalize our toy drive and hear words of encouragement from Chaplin Betty Clark about chasing away the holiday blues. For many, this time of the year is difficult to deal with, especially those who grieve the loss of a loved one. Chaplin Betty Clark provides a upbeat and insightful way for those with the blues to find ways to cope with their grief. Clark’s remarkable and optimistic approach provides practical tips that can minimize the stress that accompanies the holidays. After hearing Clark speak, many have enjoyed the holidays more than they thought they would.
Last year, Senior Moments was thrilled to provide toys to needy grandparents so they could experience the joy of giving gifts to their grandchildren. It is amazing how a simple act, such as a grandparent giving a gift to their grandchild, can have such a positive impact on elders. Many of our elders are not able to afford to give a gift and/or mobility restrictions will not allow for shopping for Christmas. However, last year, the looks on the faces of our elders who received gifts for their grands – was priceless.
We are asking for your kind donations again this year. We would love for you to provide us with a WRAPPED toy labeled with the age and sex of the child. Bring your donations to our holiday mixer. Your partnership with Senior Moments will make the season bright again for our dear elders.
Senior Moments will also support Ms. Ethel, an elder in her 80’s, by featuring her beautiful and inexpensive jewelry and handbags. Be prepared to purchase her items to complete your holiday shopping.
PLEASE NOTE THE SPECIAL DATE & TIME!!
