Our members volunteered their time in March to string beads and make "Bracelets for Ben's Wish". The bracelets become part of a kit donated to parents who have lost a small child to help ease their loss. Thank you for your kindness in helping with this worthwhile project.
Penny, front and center, leads a line dance class at the Delta Senior Center. Not only does this group enjoy their dancing but they are getting quite a workout too!
An all day "Sew Day" was organized by Mary, who as you can see was "pressed" into extra duty. The Sew For Vets group was making items to give the Vets at one of the local Veteran Homes and another part of the day was spent making sewing machine mats, which makes the work easier for those doing the sewing.
The Block of the Month is a quilting project where every month a different block of a quilt is made. The photo below is an example of what the finished quilts will resemble. The finished quilts will vary depending on the fabrics and designs each quilters chooses. We will try to update this section as the project progresses.
When you hear "Straw Weaving" you may think of weaving straw from a broom but no, this Straw Weaving project used drinking straws.
While "Dining with Susan" the group learned to make Whiskey Balls. They also got to enjoy their creations after they finished.
Fittingly, January's craft was a Snowman. These were a different style than December's.
Pickleball is a very active sport enjoyed at the Delta Senior Center. I apologize if some of the photos are blurry but this is a very robust activity and the participants are moving a lot! Imagine indoor tennis with a heavy Wiffle ball and wood paddles and you have Pickleball.
The folks you see below are taking part in the Jigsaw Puzzle Challenge. It's one of the quicker activities but loads of fun. Each player gets 10 puzzle pieces to put together, then, when they are done, they are allowed to put their finished set in the middle and help others in their group to finish the full puzzle. I think this was a tie!
For the last game of the NFL season there was a party to watch the Ravens/Steelers rivalry. It was a good time no matter who you were cheering for!
The December Craft project was creating Snowmen.
The annual Christmas Party was held on December 19th. The event was well attended with a puppet show from Puppet and Story Works to open the festivities and with the Elves from Drayer Therapy giving out the gifts and leading serving the meal. Thanks to all who helped set up, helped during, and helped with the clean up.

The Senior Center was swarming with sweaters on December 13th! While some call it an "Ugly Sweater" Contest many were far from ugly and showed some real creativity. The nice young ladies from Drayer Therapy were there to judge the sweaters and hand out prizes.
The Drayer "Grinches" and their trusty pooch Max were the judges
The Annual Christmas Fair was held December 7th this year. As usual the day starts with a Pancake Breakfast. There were plenty of vendors selling not only Christmas items but a wide variety other items as well. The day ended with the popular Basket Raffle.
On October 31st we held our annual Halloween Party. The day starts with volunteers filling bags for the children who attend the Halloween party at the Delta/Cardiff VFC. Then we start our festivities. It is a full morning with the Ghost Ring Toss, a Cake Walk, Pumpkin Bowling, Readings by the Creative Writing group, Pumpkin Painting, and Cockroach Racing (they aren't real cockroaches!). After all that the finale is the Costume Parade then lunch. We also want to thank the young ladies from Drayer Physical Therapy for volunteering their time to help out.
