“Unleash the Power of Age,” the theme for Older Americans Month 2013, will be commemorated at San Leandro’s Senior Community Center with a gala dinner dance and multicultural potluck lunch.
Every year since 1963, May has been a month to appreciate and celebrate the vitality and aspirations of older adults and their contributions.
The Senior Black and White Gala Dinner Dance, for seniors 50 and over, features the sounds of yesteryear music from the Treble Makers, dinner and a chance to participate in the selection of the 2013 Senior Gala King and Queen.
The gala will be held Friday, May 10, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the San Leandro Senior Community Center, 13909 East 14th St. The fee is $15 for San Leandro residents and $20 for non-residents.
Seniors also will be able to sample foods from many countries and cultures at the Multi-Cultural Potluck.
Sign up to bring a sampling of your favorite dish (enough for at least 4 people). Come in the traditional dress/attire of your native country if you wish. Celebrate the many contributions of older people and get to know your neighbors while you enjoy a cultural feast.
The potluck will be held Friday, May 31, noon to 2 p.m. at the San Leandro Senior Community Center, 13909 East 14th St. The fee is $3 for San Leandro residents and $5 for non-residents.
