   Happy Birthday, Bernie Callahan! Bernie Callahan celebrated her 97TH BIRTHDAY this past Saturday! Golden Age Center members wore bright colored leis, a special birthday balloon was presented to Bernie by her friends, and members sang "Happy Birthday" to her to celebrate the day. She made a great wish and enjoyed cupcakes to celebrate this milestone, momentous birthday. Enjoy your birthday to the fullest, Bernie!


   Stop by and join one of our 35 consistent programs offered at the Golden Age Center every week! Above, our Tai Chi group practices this gentle exercise at 9am on Mondays and Fridays. Learn something new and try something new!


Mahjong is a game that originated in China, and it's a game that requires some skill, strategy, calculation, and a bit of chance! Our Mahjong group has been getting together on Fridays at 12:30 p.m. to play, and they are always looking for more players to join them & to teach them the game!

There's something for everyone at the Golden Age Center.





    On July 8, we enjoyed a beautiful day on the water on the Miss Buffalo Cruise! 20 travelers enjoyed a great tour, a delicious lunch, and enjoyed time in downtown Buffalo. We enjoyed making new friends with members of the Lancaster Senior Center.

    Golden Age Center members took a Summer Stroll on the River Lea Trail in Beaver Island State Park. Paul Leuchner was kind enough to give us an eco-tour around the trail, the Bird Viewing Path, and the East River Marsh area. Mary Cooke joined us for the hike and gave us the history behind the River Lea & River Lea path. 10 friends enjoyed the stroll together in the 90 degree heat!
