Happy New Year!


From the Director 

Are you looking forward to the arrival of 2021?   I have heard many declare that they are gladly placing 2020 behind.  It has been a challenging year to say the least.  For many, it has been a time of sadness and loss; isolation and loneliness; fear and frustration.  A friend once gave me a plaque with this quote        inscribed…“Success isn't measured by what you achieve, it's measured by the obstacles you overcome.”  I think we have all overcome obstacles during these past several months. We live, learn, grow and keep moving forward!  Such is life.  Never lose HOPE. The Senior Center remains open and more members are returning. 82 members have attended since reopening in November.  It has been great to see everyone!!  Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to follow guidelines from the CDC, State of Tennessee, Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability, UCDD/AAAD, and our local Health Department.  Until further notice, we are still practicing social distancing, and limiting daily attendance and group activities.  For health and safety, everyone is encouraged to wear a mask and to practice good hygiene.  Members and guests are screened for COVID-19 symptoms and have their temperatures taken upon arrival.  Staff continue to clean daily from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Reservations are required for exercise classes, the exercise equipment room, and meals.  But, come by any time during business hours to check out a book or puzzle, use a computer, get a cup of coffee, or just say, “Hi!”  The Senior Center raised $300 during “Giving Tuesday” online giving day.  22 seniors were adopted for Christmas.  Donations were contributed to Santa’s Workshop for Woodbury Grammar School.  Thank you for your generosity in giving.  Wishing you peace, joy, and prosperity in 2021!  Happy New Year!
