Leeds Senior Citizens Program Celebrates One Year Re-Opening Anniversary | Leeds Senior Center reopened on June 9, 2021, after being closed due to COVID for over a year. Seniors were delighted to see the renovation that had taken place during the time closed. Now, this group is celebrating their “one year re-opening anniversary!” During this past year, these seniors have exercised, played an infinite number of games of dominos, visited the Vulcan, eaten lunch including dessert, painted masterpieces, exercised some more, seen Three on A String, participated in the Leeds Christmas parade, learned (and are still learning) to line dance, seen the Steel Magnolias play, even more exercise, enjoyed numerous lunches together including dessert, made fall and Christmas decorations, took pottery lessons at Earthborn Pottery, played Sequence, hosted Dolores Hydock (a great storyteller), been impressed by the Leeds Jump Rope Team, exercised even more, shared pictures of our sweethearts and sweet memories, celebrated birthdays, participated in Bible Studies, been treated to a fish fry by the Leeds Fire Department, shared countless stories about the way things used to be, met and made new friends, and have they mentioned exercise plus all of the wonderful meals they’ve had together? These seniors had a fabulous time with a shrimp boil for their recent June birthday celebration!
The Leeds Senior Center is open to those sixty years and older. A monthly calendar and menu are posted on the city’s website so everyone can keep up with what’s going on each week. The Center is the perfect place for socializing. Activities are intended to be enjoyed and to fit your schedule. They are open Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Sometimes these Seniors come a little early and stay a little later; and sometimes, this group comes a little later and leaves a little earlier. Whether you are new to the area or been here for decades, there are Seniors at the Center ready to welcome you. Oh, and they’ll make sure you exercise and have lunch, too.
Leeds Senior Center Director, Audrey Bryan, plans a full schedule each week so you will not want to miss a single moment of the action.
