Month at a Glance - September

September brings the closure of the summer, back to school for the children, and the celebration of Senior Center Months to all of us at White Rose Senior Center! The 2019 theme is: Senior Centers: The Key to Aging Well!

“This September, the National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC) is demonstrating how senior centers are integral parts of aging well. Senior centers are the key for individuals to age healthily, and also for communities to properly support older adults.”

At White Rose Senior Center, we strive to bring the best services we can to make your life and day better and keep you well! We offer Zumba Gold, Balance & Strength Training, Tai Chi, dance class with Nicole & Jenna to keep you moving!

Danza Antiqua and Judeth Hawkins are bringing the Arts to stimulate your mind and creativity! The members are going WILD over this program! We are dancing our way through the decades and learning about International Folk Dances with Jef and Nancy (Danza Antiqua) and making craft projects from different cultures and celebrating their holidays and festivals. Both of these programs are made possible from a Senior Community Center Grant we received from the Department of Aging and the PA Council on the Arts.

We also have partnered up with the York County Area Agency on Aging to bring another date for the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Vouchers. The date is Tuesday, September 10, 2019 from 9:30-11:30. Click here for the form about the income amount and here for a proxy, etc.
