Office on Aging and Disabilities Presents Holiday Event

The Salem County Office on Aging and Disabilities is bringing back its popular holiday program and craft evening – with this year’s theme Cocoa and Colors!  The social event will include an early dinner and entertainment – capped off with hot cocoa and an artist’s instruction in painting a seasonal scene.

The County is partnering with Mid-Atlantic States Career and Education Center to present to social event on two nights, December 14 and December 18. There is no cost to attend, and courtesy transportation is available for eligible seniors 60 or older and those with disabilities. Seating is limited to 50 people each evening.

McArt Ala Carte will guide guests through step-by-step painting. Entertainment will include the Penns Grove Jazz Band and Select Choir on December 14. Performing on December 18 will be Tamu Lewis and the popular tenor voice of Father Charles “Chuck” Collozi, head of Saint Gabriel Archangel Parish.

“This event provides an opportunity to learn a skill you may never thought you were able to achieve. Paint nights have become popular even with those who never thought they had the ability to paint,” said Freeholder Director Bob Vanderslice, also Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee. “The program will be filled with fun, creativity, and socialization.” 

The event will be held at Queen of Apostles Church in Pennsville. Doors will open at 3:30 PM, with dinner served at 4:00 PM. Cocoa with all the trimmings and painting will begin at 5:30 PM, ending at 7:00 PM.
