Turn Back Your Clocks on Saturday, October 31st!
It’s that time of year again – November, the month to honor our Veterans, to give thanks, and to focus on our health. We have a lot going on here at Stein. On Mondays and Wednesdays starting Nov. 2nd, we will have Public Health Solutions here to help our participants apply for Food Stamps and other benefits, etc. on site. Please see Sandy Daniels if you would like to apply. On Wednesday, November 11th, Veterans’ Day, to honor our wonderful Veterans, we are having our annual Health Fair from 10am to 2pm. Our nurses from City Tech have reached out to many health institutions and providers to participate with information, gifts and testing. Although many senior centers are closed on Veterans’ Day, we are open!
On Monday, November 16th, from 10:30 TO 11:30 Poet Natalie Rogers is starting a group called, “On The Other Side Of Over the Hill” based on her poem and video (see flyer). On Tuesday, November 17th, at 9:30 am, our Knitting Club, headed by Sandy Daniels, will be presenting 200 hand-knit hats to homeless shelters for women. Councilmember Rosie Mendez will be here to present the hats.
Our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner is scheduled for Tuesday, November 24th. Get your tickets ASAP because they are going fast. We are requesting a contribution of $4.00 if you are able to give that and we have limited tickets, so don’t forget to sign up. See LaToya or Janice- 10 am to 11 am & 12:30 pm to 1:30pm in the front of the dining room for your ticket. We are closed on Thanksgiving Day and Friday after.
Our established and new programs are going well. We’ve resumed the Senior Chorus with Turtle Bay Music School which meets on Thursdays at 12:30 to 1:30pm. Thanks for your support of these programs. Keep up the good work. I am thankful for our great staff and volunteers, interns and nurses and the talented teachers of our programs. We will have more important programs coming soon.
We are starting a page on spotlighting members of Stein. Please see the first spotlight on Phyllis Finn.
