We can learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty,
 some are dull, while others are bright, some have weird names,
 but they all have learned to live together in the same box
 – Robert Fulghum

 Almost every day, a new person comes to the Senior Center. People join for different reasons, at different times in their lives. Some people come every day, some people come every once in a while. People come for lunch, exercise, cards or maybe to ride the bus for shopping. We have people who have been coming to the Center for many years. We have people who no longer attend but request a newsletter every month to be in the know about what’s going on. The Senior Center means different things to different people.
We all share the space and services together. There are times when this can be challenging. Not everyone agrees when it comes to programs, services, room assignments and seating.
We are asking everyone to remember this when interacting with fellow members.  Everyone was new once - whether that was yesterday or twenty years ago. And while things change all the time - a smile, a slight accommodation or a kind word goes a long way to maintain the Senior Center as the welcoming, happy environment we all enjoy as we continuously grow and adapt to serve the needs of all members.
