Keeping warm at the Senior Center

Kim Nelson

Even in the dead of winter there is a lot going on at the Cook County Senior Center. Below is a list of activities that pretty much every senior could find at least one thing they would like to take part in. . Genealogy Group: We will dig a little deeper into census reports to help us track our ancestors. . Quilt Group: New class starting with a block a week quilt along, ending with a queen size quilt. . Valentine’s Day: Party at the Senior Center with Valentine Pictionary, Name that Love Song, and Guess who the love letters are from (the rich and famous). . Book Club: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi . Technology Help: Interns from the high school will be here to help answer your questions about computers, iPads, cell phones, etc.
