Hello Everyone,

Can we talk about how wonderful April has been since Phase 3 was initiated on April 4th?! The Center has been bustling with activities and new faces, friends reconnecting and helpful information being passed along. It's been a breath of fresh air. Below are flyers for upcoming events but I wanted to touch upon a few:

First up, Cinco De Mayo will be celebrated with a festive game of LOTERIA (Mexican Bingo) at 1pm on Thursday, May 5. A tiny PiƱata craft will also be made if time allows. RSVP encouraged.

Next, the City of Chicago will be celebrating Older Americans Month with a special box lunch on Friday, May 13. To guarantee your lunch we must get an RSVP by Thursday May 5 otherwise it is first come, first served. The lunch is noted in the attached May Menu.

In addition, the Center will be closed on Monday, May 30 in celebration of Memorial Day.

Otherwise, please continue to check the website, stop in or call to find out about current activities as the calendar continues to evolve. Below is the most current calendar as well as the link to the City's Zoom schedule.

In person Fitness takes place on Tues & Thurs at 9am with Chair Stretch & Fitness. The Fitness Center is open M-F 8:30am-4pm. As previously stated, an assessment with Michelle is needed prior to your first visit. Call to set up an appointment. Additionally Laughter Yoga is back on Friday, May 13 at 2pm. Starting in June it will be the 2nd & 4th Fridays monthly unless otherwise noted. This class is a real gas.. LOL. Check it out.

Finally I would like to encourage all members to use Monday & Wednesday mornings as a social hour and join our Coffee Clutch. Bring a game you may like to play or just come for a cup & a pastry. This is your time and space. Please let me know how you would like to use it. That being said, I understand there is still frustration that we are not back 100%. Finding DFSS approved instructors continues to be a challenge and the green light for Congregate hot lunches has not yet happened. It's coming along with the warm weather. Hooray.

As always we are here for you, Mon-Fri, 8:30am-4:30pm. Stop by, call or email. Be sure to like our Facebook page and check our website to answer many questions.

Norwood Park Senior Center 5801 N. Natoma, Chicago, IL 60631. 773-775-6071,

Take Care!
