Senior Center Updates

From the Senior Center Director, Tricia Bacon:

As many of you have already heard, I have cancelled all of our day trips for 2020 as well as the Canyon Country trip scheduled for September. It was a difficult decision to make but one that had to be made to keep our seniors safe and healthy. I have mailed back checks to everyone who was registered for the day trips. If you haven’t received yours, they should arrive any day now. Payments by credit card will be reimbursed with a refund check issued by the town that may take a few weeks. I know everyone is disappointed but, since they were so popular, I will try to offer the same trips next year. Stay tuned! The Canyon Country trip has been rescheduled for September 2021 so if you were unable to join us this year but would like to go next year, please let me know and I will give you all the details.

To anyone who signed up for the AARP Smart Driver program, the classes have been cancelled indefinitely. Checks will be mailed back in the coming weeks. We will try to reschedule when the center re-opens. We apologize for the inconvenience.

There is a great virtual workshop (via Zoom) being offered by Upstate, Oasis and the Onondaga County Office of Aging. The program is called “Living Healthy With A Chronic Condition” and it is FREE to participate. It is a 6-week series that will run on either Wednesday mornings (9:00 – 11:30 am) beginning June 24 or Thursday mornings (10:00 – 12:30) beginning July 30. The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program will help you gain control over your health and improve your quality of life. Especially if you have a chronic condition such as: diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain, cancer, anxiety/depression, asthma/COPD or another health condition. Each participant will receive a free book, “Living a Healthy Life with chronic conditions” as well as the CD, “Relaxation for the mind and Body”. To register, call Lisa at (315) 447-3434. Once you are registered, you will receive the materials in the mail and assistance on using Zoom.

For those of you running out of books to read, good news! In addition to the books, DVDs, and puzzles available at the Senior Center, The Maxwell Library has just announced that they are opening for curbside pickup beginning June 15th. The library will be closed for browsing but you can go to to search for and place reserves on library materials. For those without internet access, you may call the library at (315) 672-3661 for assistance.
