Dorchester's Anniversary Party

Happy Birthday to our Senior Center! With all your help and support we just turned 37! We had our annual celebration of Dorchester's founding back in 1973. Yes, it has actually been 37 years. Our members just keep coming back, and we welcome them with open arms. To celebrate our anniversary we hosted a party. Dorchester invited our very friendly DJ Mario, who got just about everyone dancing. Even those who are normally very attached to their seat left it for a good dance or two. We had delicious food, great decorations and the members themselves created a wonderful atmosphere. That sure was a party to remember. With such great feedback, we're hoping to last 37 more years and 37 more after that, and so on. Dorchester hopes to continue working with you to be the place that you'll love to return to every day.

Arts and Crafts

Our center provides activities that everyone can enjoy. Our art loving future Picassos love the Arts and Crafts sessions, with our teacher Gitana. She is not called "The Creative Diva" for nothing, I tell you. She had our members make cards for all occasions, and even the least artistic of us created something we enjoyed. The technique she uses is very different. And it makes our members proud to make things that you will not see on any store shelf. Gitana also helped us to create paper and pen holders, boxes to hold your possesions and other wonderful hand-made crafts that members get to take home and share with their families. Believe me, once you see a finished product you'll think your eyes are fooling you. So, come on down and see for yourself. Gitana returns in September; we hope to see you then.
