The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet Blogs
Senior Spirit: 8/8/12
Remember the fun and anticipation of “back to school days”? What new things will I learn? How many new friends will I meet? What new adventures are ahead?
The Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center brings those memories back. Take a class in computers, art or exercise. Join the Choir, Drama Club or Walking on Sunshine Club. Learn one of five different card games, how to play nine-ball or learn how to knit, crochet or quilt.
Lunch time was always a favorite! Meals on Wheels is serving up a healthy lunch every day. Call to rsvp in advance: 758-9114. A covered dish social lunch with entertainment is scheduled for the second Wednesday of every month. Three Thursdays each month, the cooking club makes a home cooked meal for just $5. The community can participate. Lunch can be eat-in, carry-out or delivery. Call for a menu and to rsvp. All proceeds benefit the building fund.
You can meet your friends each morning for coffee and plan which programs you want to participate in that day. Come and sit on the front porch and share a tale or two. Membership is just $20 per year and you will receive a free T-shirt.
Got time for extra-curricular activities? Volunteer to serve one of 8 committees, be a part of the “Let’s build a Park” committee or serve one of the fundraising event committees.
Mark your calendars for upcoming special events: On September 19, world champion horseshoe pitcher, Joan Elmore will join us for the annual horseshoe pitching tournament. Sign up to play in the tournament.
The annual senior picnic is scheduled for Friday, September 28. Karaoke, bingo and games are on the agenda. Members will sign up to participate.
Do you like to travel? Day trips and longer trips are scheduled each quarter. A trip to San Antonio and a trip to Kentucky Downs are on the calendar.
Every Thursday from 1 – 3 pm, you can join us for a 2 hour country music jam. Bring your acoustic instrument and join the performers or be a part of the audience. Just like school, there is never a dull moment!
It’s never too late to relive “back to school days”. Come and learn something new, meet a new friend and have a great time at the Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center, “where friends meet”,
