Senior Center Opens At New Location January 15, 2019

The Downingtown Area Senior Center (DASC), formerly located at 983 E. Lancaster Ave., has moved.

On Jan. 2, the DASC opened its doors in the worship center at Thorndale United Methodist Church (TUMC), 3503 Lincoln Highway, Thorndale. The center, which offers a host of programs for seniors, as well as lunch, is open Mondays through Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

According to DASC executive director Muriel Kennedy, when the Downingtown location was sold, the senior center was in need of a new home. She spoke with the Rev. Shauna Ridge, TUMC pastor, who agreed to the partnership.

Kennedy noted that this is not the first time that the senior center was housed at the Thorndale church. She explained that DASC was temporarily located at TUMC for several months in 2014 when the Downingtown facility was closed because of environmental issues.

"They were here for five or six months and when all the work was done, they went back," said Kennedy, who was named the DASC executive director in June of 2017. "Since we were here before, we asked if we come here again because (the facility) is so nice."

Kennedy emphasized that the center will continue to offer the same services and classes that were previously held at the former location. Ongoing programs include Zumba, tai chi, yoga, knitting and sewing, a bridge club, a book club and more.

"Everything is the same. Every service we have always provided is (still available)," said Kennedy.

Upcoming special events at DASC include a performance by the Grateful Alive Band on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 12:30 p.m. "They are a group of seniors who have been musicians all their lives," said Kathleen Moulter, DASC member services coordinator. "They are wonderful."

Moulter noted that each month features a birthday party at the senior center for all the members who are celebrating that month. "We have really good entertainers," she said, noting that Jeffrey Krick Jr., an Elvis impersonator, will be featured during the celebration on Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 12:30 p.m.

"We have blood pressure screenings once a month, games every day and bingo," Moulter said. "We will start to take appointments in February for tax assistance."

Additionally, a Valentine's tea party will be held on Monday, Feb. 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m. DASC is also offering an AARP safe driving course for people age 55 and over on Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 27 and 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be included; registration is required.

DASC membership is open to seniors age 60 and over who live in the communities of Downingtown, Elverson and Honey Brook, as well as the townships of Caln, East Bradford, East Brandywine, East Caln, East Fallowfield, East Nantmeal, Upper Uwchlan, Uwchlan, Wallace, West Bradford, West Whiteland and West Nantmeal.

Membership is not required to take part in the lunch program. However, reservations are required.

In addition to settling into the new facility, Kennedy has been speaking to local groups with members who have parents who are senior citizens. "I want people to know that there is a place where their parents can spend time and they don't have to worry about them," she stated. "I try to spread the word. We are really helping families, not just older individuals."

Kennedy said she is very pleased with the transition to the new facility and hopes that more local seniors will stop by the center and consider becoming members. "The (worship center) is beautiful," she said. "(The atmosphere) is super friendly. I am very happy that we are here."

Those who visit the center are asked to use the rear entrance of the church. An elevator is available. For more information, readers may call the center at 610-269-3939 or visit www.downingtownseniors.org.

Gallery Features Artists' Works January 3, 2019

The Art Gallery at United Zion Retirement Community (UZRC), 722 Furnace Hills Pike, Lititz, is featuring two of its employees as the UZRC Artists of the Month for January - Nancy Shelly and Chris Eby.

Shelly studied commercial art and is currently exploring fluid painting. Shelly enjoys the possibilities of fluid painting and loves to show others how it works. In fluid painting, the paint is mixed with an additive to make the paint more fluid. Instead of using paint brushes, everyday tools from strainers to cups to hair dryer diffusers are filled with the altered paint and poured onto canvas. The paint is also manipulated with string, canvas tipping, and layering.

Eby's artwork is inspired by Japanese manga and anime, which are two artistic styles of comics and cartoons. His art process typically begins with a pencil sketch that is then inked over with a fine-point marker and colored in with pencils.

The artwork may be viewed daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Thursday, Jan. 31. For more information on the Art Gallery, readers may contact Alyssa Wojcik at awojcik@uzrc.org.

Loomers Share The Love January 3, 2019

Every weeknight evening in the foyer of the James Buchanan apartment complex at Masonic Village at Elizabethtown, a dozen or so individuals gather to loom knit. Known as the Masonic Village Loving Loomers, the group began meeting together two years ago after two women discovered a common interest in loom knitting and helping others. They began meeting casually in the library to create hats to donate for local, national, and international needs.

As more people noticed what the women were doing and wanted to take part, they decided to move their nightly meetings to the roomier foyer to accommodate the growing group. "It's friendship, getting together and laughing, and it's a wonderful social outlet to do something good for someone else," said Mary Jean Risser, who helped to establish the club.

Not everyone attends every night, but there is always a group knitting together for about an hour - give or take. "We are a very close-knit group," said Betty Deibert with a laugh. Club members Donald and Emma Hoover have taken on the role of providing a bit of entertainment for the knitters, whether that be a song or a brief reading to open their time together.

Other members of the group include Ann Colangelo, Dianna Taggart, Lynne Brenneman, Joan Firth, Dee Molinari, Twila Shreffler, Jean Saam, Millie Jamison, Lilly Campbell, Edna Sloan, Chris Hornberger, Carolyn Matthews, and Wanda Roth.

In the two years that the Loving Loomers have been gathering, they have made a total of 1,759 hats - and counting - that have been donated to folks in need including babies, cancer patients, and school children. The Loving Loomers also donate items to Elizabethtown Community Housing and Outreach Services (ECHOS), a not-for-profit social service agency that supports individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or are in need of services in the Elizabethtown, Rheems, Bainbridge, Mount Joy, Marietta, and Maytown area. In 2018, the Loving Loomers were recognized for their volunteer efforts by Lancaster General Health - Penn Medicine.

All of the yarn that the Masonic Village Loving Loomers use is donated, and each member of the group provides his or her own loom to use to create hats. Looms of various sizes are used, depending on whether the hats are for babies or adults. Some members work on scarves, quilts, and other projects at the meetings as well. The time that it takes to complete a single hat can vary based on a person's level of experience and the complexity of the chosen design, explained Deibert, who joined the club after noticing and becoming intrigued by the members' regular meetings.

"I like the friendship and caring and the camaraderie," shared Deibert. "It's a family, really."

The Loving Loomers is one of the many resident-organized clubs on the campus of Masonic Village. To learn more about Masonic Village, readers may visit https://masonicvillages.org.
