TIOT_logo Just for July! TWO different days and times for Try It Out Tuesday—and one is on a Wednesday. Have you recently retired or have retired family members moving to the Charlottesville area? Perhaps you are a new member or thinking about joining—or you just want to learn more about the Senior Center?  If so, please join us for wine and cheese on Tuesday, July 11, at 5:30 p.m., or on Wednesday, July 12, at 10:00 a.m. for coffee and conversation.

In August, we’ll be back to the regular schedule of 12:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month for a light lunch generously donated by Whole Foods and an orientation presentation. For all members and visitors we have free hearing screenings from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Several crafters will be selling their wares in our lobby from 8:30 am to noon. Orientation and lunch is open to new members, guests, and anyone wanting to learn more about the Senior Center. Please join us!! Try It Out Tuesday is generously sponsored by The Colonnades, an independent living community and retirement home.
