JFS & Mizell Senior Center Host…“Let’s Do Lunch”

For our homebound seniors…please join us for an afternoon “out” engaging in games, art creation, workshops, beautifying, exercise, live entertainment & more! You will meet and socialize with other older adults, and you will learn new skills, enjoy entertainment, share lunch with other like-minded seniors and most importantly take a break from your daily routine. Studies show that by getting out and socializing you can improve your health while diminishing the effects of psychological and physical diseases and disorders. This “FREE” program will be held at the Mizell Senior Center and feature a special presentation by Oasis Community Services.
