Senior Center News

Women on the Move

Connie Tate’s presentation of Women on the Move, originally scheduled for March 8 but postponed because of snow, will not take place Friday, April 20, at 11, in the senior center lounge.

A Wilton resident for 68 years, Connie will highlight recent efforts by women around the world to improve their status and the roles played by the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and the YWCA. She will also describe how local efforts sponsoring a Syrian family in Wilton and Afghan students elsewhere in Connecticut have contributed to the growing emphasis on improving the lives and rights of women worldwide.

The downsized gourmet

Table for one or two? It’s sometimes difficult to prepare a tasty and nutritious meal for only one or two people. To help solve this problem, Oasis Senior Advisors of Fairfield County and The Greens at Cannondale have teamed up with Chef Biagio of The Greens.

On Wednesday, April 25, at 11:15 in the senior center cafe, Chef Biagio will demonstrate how to prepare a week’s worth of healthy, affordable, easy-to-prepare meals for your downsized lifestyle. Come, watch, and taste what she has prepared for you. Leave with a shopping list and easy-to-follow recipes. Registration: 203-834-6240.

Oasis Senior Advisors offers a free service that helps families navigate changes in senior living options.
