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.
The National Institute of Senior Centers designates the entire month of September as National Senior Center Month. This year’s theme is “Celebrate LIFE at Your Senior Center”. We invite you to visit with us to learn of the resources and tools we offer at the Senior Center to empower you to “celebrate life” at our Senior Center.
In celebration of National Senior Center Month, we will host our Annual Health Fair on Wednesday, September 23rd. We will have over 50 vendors in attendance, offering health screenings, information and plenty of raffle prizes. Please be sure to take advantage of this FREE event. (See insert for details).
We will host our annual Flu Shot Clinic for members only Tuesday, September 29th. You must pre-register for this clinic on September 8, 9, or 10th. A public flu shot clinic will be held on October 16th. Please encourage your family and friends to receive their vaccine at the October 16th public clinic to be held at the Center. Our agency receives $1.00 for each vaccine administered!
