We have just completed a very successful trip to Gettysburg with our senior group. Our senior program runs every Wednesday at the Irish Immigration Center from 12 p.m. where people get together to share lunch, see old friends and make new ones. We always include fun, cultural and informative activities throughout the year. In October we will have guests speakers including Medicare advisers and music from the wonderful Terry Kane. Everyone is welcome to join!
