JOIN US FOR THE PET PARADE Sat., May 18 at 10 am The SS Center is putting together a group of seniors to walk together (or ride on a float) with their pets…Dogs, Cats, Birds…Rabbits? You can hold your pet if there is a float to ride on OR walk your dog/pet along with other Seniors all together in a group. Seniors need to show the whole community that we are not the normal stereotyped “Old Seniors” that the word Senior implies. Seniors today are VITAL, ACTIVE, ENERGETIC & ENTHUSIASTIC about LIFE and embracing their retirement years. Be at the Parade site by 9:30/9:45 am. Let’s show everyone that the word SENIOR does not mean OLD!
