Rotary Has Heart for Seniors

Rotary sponsored the 5th Annual Thomasville Scott Senior Center Valentine's Party for 80 seniors Feb 14, 2020. This year we were excited to add a "kissing booth" and props to use for extra cute photos. Our Rotarians greeted the well-dressed seniors and encouraged them to take a turn getting their picture taken. (We printed these photos and delivered them to the center the next week for each person.) We had music playing and a little dancing. Our volunteers from Magnolia High Alumni were the best dance partners. The seniors enjoyed a great meal catered by Henderson's. Our very own Rotarian Carol Jones made cheesecakes and chocolate mousse for dessert. No party would be complete without gifts. Our community did outstanding this year providing gifts. Special thanks to Southern Pines and both TNB locations for allowing Rotary to have the white trees with ornaments listing senior names and requested gift. Some seniors chose to not open their gifts until they were home. Others couldn't wait and had to know right away. We had several new committee members this year who brought creative ideas and lots of hands on help.
