Seniors on the Go Moves Meeting Location
June activities planned
TOPPENISH – “Seniors on the Go,” a local senior citizen group in Toppenish, is moving its meeting location to the conference center at the Toppenish Medical-Dental Clinic.
The group was formed nearly two years ago, with the aim of bringing Lower Valley senior citizens together.
Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic (YVFWC) and Safe Haven Community Center support the group, and provide coffee, a meeting space, and transportation to group outings. From the beginning, the group has held monthly potlucks, bingo games, and outings to area businesses, museums, and other local activities. The group recently celebrated the move to the new location by offering free haircuts, food demonstrations, and social activity for all.
Each month, the group plans an outing, a potluck, an education session, and a day of bingo.
In the past, the group has visited area museums, toured local businesses, and heard from local professionals on topics ranging from safety to health themes.
June’s schedule is:
June 7th – Trip to the Central Washington Agricultural Museum in Union Gap
June 14th – Potluck
June 21st – CPR Basics (tentative)
June 28th – Bingo
Group members meet at the conference center each Wednesday at 10 a.m., all area senior citizens are welcome to attend at 510 West First Avenue in Toppenish.
For more information, interested attendees can call Safe Haven Community Center at (509) 865-1804.
