Salvatore Mancini Resource & Activity Center “State of Seniors” Luncheon on April 29th.
Thank you Governor Raimondo for visiting our Senior Center on April 29th.
MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR – September
The National Institute of Senior Centers designates the month of September as “National Senior Center Month“. This year’s theme is “Find Balance at Your Center“. We encourage you to invite a friend to visit us during September to learn of the many resources we offer to empower seniors to find balance at SMRAC – YOUR Senior Center. Whether it is trying Chair Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Zumba Gold, attending a watercolor class, taking a computer class or enjoying one of our special luncheons, all these activities add balance to your life.
In order to meet our fundraising goal this year, we are relying heavily on the generosity of individuals, businesses and participants for assistance. Please support the fundraisers we have planned this month: “Summer Sizzler” on Friday, September 10th at Ciara Restaurant and the “Annual Pasta Dinner” on Tuesday, September 20th at the Senior Center. Transportation is available for both of these fundraisers.
The National Institute of Senior Centers is hosing a “Senior Center Flu Shot Challenge“. The top 3 senior centers with the highest vaccination rate will win a monetary prize. Please consider receiving a flu shot at the Center this year and help us to reach our goal of becoming one of the top three senior centers! Our annual Flu Shot Clinic for members only is Tuesday, October 4th, however, you must pre-register for this clinic on September 13, 14, and 15. A public flu shot clinic will be held on Friday, October 7th. Please encourage family and friends to receive their vaccine at the October 7th public clinic to help us achieve our goal.
“Thank you” to everyone who attended and lent a helping hand at our “Annual “Picnic” held last month. Over 150 people attended and a great time was had by all! Our sincere thanks to the following donors for their contributions to this annual event: Councilman Dino Autiello, Councilwoman Kristen Catanzaro, Albert Peterson and American Safety & Training, Jim Curtis and Homestead Bakery, Mariani’s Funeral Home, Scandinavian Home and Berkshire Place. A special salute to our dedicated volunteers and staff for their endless efforts to ensure a perfect event!
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Warmest Personal Regards,
Karen Testa Leone, Executive Director
