On June 26th we celebrated the annual Nifty Nineties Plus Party; a tradition Barbara Celnar, the previous center manager, began… way back when. Anyone between 90 and 100 years old was welcome to join in the festivities to be honored for their years and accumulated experience/wisdom that come with the territory. Paige had cupcakes to match our logo and beverages. Some danced and others just enjoyed watching. But each shared their ‘secret’ for a long and happy life…or at least something they learned along the way.
Just one more way The Friendship Center brings people together and cultivates friendships and community.
