I’m always so impressed with our senior citizens at the senior center in Uxbridge, MA. They are keenly alert, smiling and eager to join into activities and conversation. They love being part of the activities and appreciate a hug and a kind word.
This is the first senior center I’ve ever known so I have no basis for comparison but I can tell you the seniors still matter here. They’re important and significant in our community. Local and statewide politicians come on a regular basis to talk to the senior population. The staff is dedicated to their needs and make them all feel welcome.
As a portrait photographer for many decades I consider it an honor to photograph those in attendance on weekdays as well as the special events such as the Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day parties. There’s a lot going on at the senior center this time of year and next we celebrate Easter week. I look forward to seeing more smiling faces in attendance.
