Seniors get a room of their own
Seniors finally have a gathering place at the Cameron Park Community Center.
On Aug. 19 the Cameron Park Community Services District hosted a grand opening celebration. Fueled by the efforts of the Cameron Park Fifty Plus group, the newly created senior room is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the center, 2502 Country Club Drive. Seniors 50 and older are welcome to stop by, play cards and games, read, watch movies and have fun with friends.
Starting on Sept. 17, the senior room will host presentations (to be continued the first and third Wednesday of each month).
Cameron Park Fifty Plus is looking for volunteers to help staff and greet at the senior room. The group also seeks people who have a love and passion for music, singing, art, crafts, theater, history, the law or any other subject or field of interest. Volunteers can share their passion on any topic with others either by giving a talk, leading a class or group or acting as a field trip leader to a favorite place or activity.
The senior room is funded by the CPCSD, Cameron Park Foundation and by a donation from Friends of Seniors.
