Seniors and Teens Intergenerational “Oldies but Goodies” Picnic Review
Faye Wright, Teen Program Manager, and her Takoma Park teens, hosted a cookout for the seniors on June 30,
2011. The ―oldies but goodies‖ picnic, held at Heffner Community Center, was a wonderful intergenerational
event for the teens and seniors to meet and share stories over grilled burgers and other yummy picnic food.
The background was filled with music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, and included a special performance by
keyboardist, Robert Charkovsky. Twenty nine seniors came out to enjoy an afternoon of music, old schooltrivia, and lunch. During the social event, the teens and seniors exchanged memories. In addition, some seniors brought mementos including 8 track tapes, coins, and photos to give teens a glimpse into the past.

Game Room (summer)hours:Monday
Friday,12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.(No Wednesdays)Saturdays,10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.Line Dancing is tremendously beneficial in keeping us young. The benefits of line dancing and all types of dancing are many: weight loss, control of high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol, stress management,reduce risk of heart disease, strengthen bones and muscles, improve posture and balance, which in turn pre-vents falls, and increase your stamina and flexibility while building confidence. Barbara Craddock, profes-sional dancer and instructor, explains the benefits of dance in her article titled Benefits of Dancing & Quick Tips for Staying Healthy
. According to Ms. Craddock, along with the physical benefits, ―dance improves our memory by making us recall steps, routines and dance patterns making it a great mental exercise for brains.‖
Line Dancing is a social activity that leads to meeting new people and making new friends,
and you don’t need a dance
 partner to join in the fun! Joinour own line dance instructor extraordinaire, Ms. BarbaraBrown on Wednesdays andFridays to see why her studentsare so happy. See page 4 for class information.
