The Mission of the Salvatore Mancini Resource & Activity Center is to provide programs and services to Enhance, Enrich, & Educate the elders of our community; and to act as a community resource to elders and their families.
May is “Older Americans” Month and it is a proud tradition that shows our commitment to honoring the value elders contribute to our community. This year’s theme is, “Unleash the Power of Age!” Join us for one of the many activities, presentations and celebrations we have planned this month and “unleash” YOUR power with us!
Health Fairs are a useful tool in preventing health concerns, due to the many screenings and services offered. Join us at our Annual Health Fair on Wednesday, May 29th, 9:00 – 11:30 am and take advantage of the information provided by over 50 vendors. Special thanks to Roger Williams Medical Center and Golden Crest Nursing Centre, co-sponsors of this year’s Health Fair.
We will honor all Mothers, Grandmothers, Adoptive Mothers and Godmothers at our Annual Mother’s Day celebration on Wednesday, May 8th. You must make a reservation for this celebration. All Mothers will receive a gift, compliments of Mayor Lombardi!
For many of us, Memorial Day has come to signify the beginning of summer, opening of the pool, and a time for barbecues. In the midst of these festivities, we too often overlook the holiday’s true meaning. Although the challenges have changed, the men and women of our armed forces, both past and present, remain devoted to their duty and to our country. As a sign of our appreciation, we are sponsoring a “Memorial Day” fundraiser. We will display special “Memorial Day” centerpieces at our Dining Room during the month of May. Each centerpiece will include miniature flags with the name of a loved one who has served or continues to serve in the Armed Forces. Purchase a flag ($2.00 – suggested donation) to help us show that we are grateful for the many sacrifices made to guarantee our freedom! Flags will be sold in the front foyer daily.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Warmest personal regards,
Karen Testa Leone
