The Salem County Office on Aging and Disabilities is partnering with the Mid Atlantic States Career & Education Center to host the holiday events on December 7 and December 14 at Queen of Apostles in Pennsville. Students in the Penns Grove FFA will be on hand to assist those attending in making a green wreath, pinecone wreath, large door swag, or an oblong table centerpiece.
There will be holiday music, a visit from Santa, and dinner, followed by the decorations that people attending can take home with them. Courtesy transportation is available through the Office on Aging Specialized Transportation Program. Each event can handle 100 attendees.
“This is a wonderful social event that gives our seniors and disabled an chance to get out, have fun, enjoy friendly conversation, and make a holiday decoration that they can keep,” said Freeholder Director Julie Acton. “The FFA has done this before with Mid-Atlantic, so we know this will be a fabulous, socialization time.”
Doors will open at 3:30 PM, with dinner served from 4 – 5PM, and the decoration workshop from 5 – 7 PM. Those wishing to attend must pre-register through the Office on Aging and Disabilities by calling 856-339-8622. At the time of registration, people can choose which day to attend and which decoration they would like to make.
“Salem County does not offer a lot of opportunities for our seniors, so we are delighted to partner with Mid Atlantic to provide these uplifting events,” said Freeholder Bob Vanderslice, who chairs the Health and Human Services Department. “We also recognize that the holidays can be difficult for those without a lot of friends and family around. These social events help offset that loneliness.”
