I found a quote this morning by Freya Stark. It's so relevant to what the Friendship Centers offer the community.
"On the whole, age comes more gently to those who have some doorway into an abstract world - art or philosophy or learning - regions where the years are scarcely noticed and the young and the old can meet in a pale, truthful light."
The Friendship Centers offer so many programs, each designed to focus on helping you age with dignity, learning, camaraderie, entertainment, health and social engagement. They represent your "doorway".
If you haven't been to a Friendship Centers' campus, start with a visit to the Calendar of Events on the left side of the blog. It's an amazing place with an incredible staff, volunteers and participants and always something new going on.
