Celebrating National Senior Center Month
September 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
On Saturday, September 9, Orcas Senior Center (OSC) will celebrate national Senior Center Month with a reception at 2 PM. Featured speakers will include Rep. Debra Lekanoff, Commissioner Cindy Wolf and SHIBA Coordinator and Health Care District Commissioner, Pegi Groundwater.
With advances in public health, we are living and staying active longer. The needs and interests of older Americans today are different than those of their grandparents. The organization, policies, and services of senior centers must adapt to stay relevant for today’s older population. OSC is an integral part of our island social services infrastructure. We emphasize programming that empowers older adults to age well safely and to strengthen mind, body, and spirit connections. OSC provides opportunities for people of all ages to volunteer, learn and grow.
Please join us at 1:30 for music, refreshments, and for a thought-provoking conversation about state and local efforts to meet the needs of older adults and their families starting at 2 PM. OSC is an independent nonprofit organization and receives no local tax dollars.
