New Photo Exhibit in Lobby



Next time you are in the lobby of the Civic Park Community Center take a look at the new photo exhibit. There are photos of Seniors Club drop-in groups, Cafe Costa, senior volunteers at Market Day, and Seniors Trips. The project was a joint effort by the Seniors Club and city staff at the Civic Park Community Center. Jody Johnson (3rd from right) designed the exhibit to look like a clothesline with photos held up by tiny clothes pins. Civic Park Community Center manager, Kat Reisinger (far right), made the space available. As volunteers were installing the exhibit, some people from the Bingo group were taking a break and joined in the effort. Others pointed out friends in the photos. Stop by and see the variety of activities that the Community Center and Seniors Club offer for seniors. Comments on the exhibit have been very positive. Thank you, Jody!
