During the past 18 months of the pandemic, the Active Senior Network and Berea Community Outreach have kept residents in touch with services virtually and via phone and with some innovative programs.
As we come out of the COVID restrictions, the City is looking to expand some programs, add new ones and possibly change others so that we all feel safe but included at the same time.
Recently, I sent letters to seniors asking for their feedback. The letter included a survey with eight questions on what programs they enjoy; what outings, such as Walking Club or bus tours, they prefer; what can we do to improve, change, add or eliminate.
Please return the survey to Natalie Guzzo at Berea Community Outreach by June 14. You can mail it to Natalie at 535 Wyleswood Drive, Berea, OH 44017. You can contact her at (440) 826-4891 or email@example.com.
We have some programs under way for June. Club 535 is back, starting 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, June 24. It features music, dancing and socializing. Instead of Smith School, we’ll meet at the Coe Lake Pavilion. Masks are required.
I will meet with seniors at Coe Lake on June 28. We will chat about City events, issues or whatever is on your mind.
There is an extensive listing of Active Senior Network programs in the June issue of the Berean. Please check them out. If you attend any of the events, please let us know what you liked or didn’t like and give us suggestions on making changes.
