I found a quote that I simply love that's so accurate....
you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years.
Your body changes, but you don't change at all.
And that, of course, causes great confusion."
Each time I've been over to the Senior Center, I see dozens of people who are for the most part 10-15 years older than I am and the smiles on their faces are infectious. They refuse to slow down anymore than they have to. They're dancing, talking, reading in the library, playing pool or just watching the world and sharing a conversation with a friend.
Age really is just a number. We're all only as old as we want to be and this is where the Friendship Centers play such a significant role in the community. Whether it's health needs, socializing, education, fine-tuning a hobby or staying in touch with new friends, check out the schedules this month.
There's so much going on in both Sarasota and the Venice Senior Centers! For more information visit the Friendship Centers' website.
