News from Activities

Allentown Senior Living Activities DirectorIt’s spring, and things are hopping here!

We have added some new programs to the calendar, based on your requests. First, join us for “Coffee Klatch” on Sunday mornings. This is an informal gathering for coffee and conversation. Coffee Klatch is a great time to connect with friends, and make new friends, too!

The most recent men’s lunch was a great success, with our largest attendance to date! We’ve added more opportunities for men to find camaraderie, with a Men’s Club added on Tuesday nights.

Speaking of things hopping, the Easter bunny will be hopping by for photos on April 12th from 2:00-4:00 pm in the living room. Our annual resident photos with the Easter bunny are a lot of fun, so please be sure to join us!
