Salisbury COA celebrates Older Americans Month in May

(Continued)

Andover’s Sunset Tappers will dance their hearts out at noon on May 23, combined with an ice cream social.

And author Rose Madeline Mula comes to the Hilton Center at 1 p.m. on May 29 for a Spring Tea. Mula’s work has appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, and her humorous essays appear in books. The afternoon will offer lots of laughs, between sips of tea.

Although reservations are required, all these programs are offered free, Pettis said, thanks to the Mass. Cultural Arts Council, and sponsorship of assorted organizations, like Assisted Living, Maplewood Rehabilitation, Amesbury Village and home health agencies.

“Our center is also participating in the kindness campaign through the Elder Justice Network,” Pettis said. “We have a pledge board asking seniors to sign up and commit to doing random act of kindness, complimenting others, smiling, sharing a table with someone new, sending notes or cards. We hope to inspire our seniors to be thoughtful — paying it forward. Something really small can make a very big difference in someone’s life.”

For more information on Salisbury Council on Aging, call the center at 978-462-2412, or drop in some day and look around.
