Greetings! April is coming to a close and May is quickly approaching. For the entire month of May we at the center will be celebrating Older Americans Month. Our days will be chock full of exciting activities and fun games and programs and services beneficial to the health and well being of our seniors. The celebration kicks off Thursday, May 1st with a raffle for a bouquet of flowers for everyone visiting the center that day and the first of our daily “Let’s Make A Deal” game. Beginning May 1st everyday you visit the center you will have the opportunity to drop your name into a raffle for an Alaska Railroad moose print signed by artist Ray Gamradt.
