Sesame Street fans will recognize this as the opening line of a catchy little song used to teach children that community is important and the people in your community are special. During September, which is National Senior Centers Month, the Adams County Office for Aging Inc. (ACOFA) would like to remind you that the senior centers located in many of your neighborhoods are also important and special.
Senior Centers are gathering places for people age 60 and over who are still living independently and would like a place to socialize. Centers provide a welcoming, friendly environment where people can laugh, talk and meet new friends. Right now, connection to others is especially important and difficult. Senior centers are doing their best to keep members connected even as they open to serve a small portion of the regular crowd.
