Inside the Senior Center
The Waynesboro Senior Center, sponsored by Valley Program for Aging Services, invites people 60 years of age and older to participate in a variety of programs to be offered in the coming week. The center, at 325 Pine Ave., in the Jackson-Wilson building, is open 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Transportation is provided as needed by a VPAS van driver, who also helps with shopping trips and appointments to local doctors. Contributions toward expenses are accepted.
The Senior Center requires that all regular staff have current CPR and First Aid certifications in order to provide the best possible service to their members. The Center will be closed on Monday, June 21 to allow staff to attend training conducted by the Red Cross. This year they will be trained to use an AED in preparation for plans to purchase one for the building.
Memories, Quilts, and Pool Tables
Robert Weeks was a member of the Waynesboro Senior Center for many years. His passions were playing pool and quilting. He has donated a quilt to the center for the last 5 years to help the Center raise money for specific projects. This year, he requested the proceeds go to buy a second pool table as there are more and more members who want to play pool.
Raffle tickets went on sale in mid-April for Robert’s latest quilt. This the final week of ticket sales, as the drawing will be on June 25. Tickets are available at the Senior Center. They are $1 each or a book of 6 tickets for $5. Unfortunately, Robert passed away on May 25 after a battle with cancer. On the morning of the raffle drawing, there will be a time to remember Robert’s life before the drawing is held. Whoever wins this quilt will have not only a beautiful quilt (Lover’s Knot in shades of purple for a double or queen bed), but will have one that is indeed a treasure full of memories for the staff and members of the Senior Center.
