Every event is designed with your interests and well-being in mind, ensuring there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

July 12th: We kick off the month with a delightful trip to Shady Maple, where our members can indulge in a vast array of delicious foods and enjoy a day of camaraderie and fun. This event has already generated a lot of excitement and is now sold out!

July 17th: Join us for a Lunch & Learn PA Health Wellness session at 11:00 am. This event will provide insightful information about living healthier and happier lives. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn new ways to improve your health and well-being.

July 19th: We will host Stroke Prevention with Mainline Health from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. This empowering session will offer vital strategies and tips to help prevent strokes and protect your health.

July 25th: Another chance for movie buffs to gather! Join us for an additional Movie and a Meal event from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. It's a perfect way to spend the afternoon with friends, enjoying cinematic fun and tasty bites.

July 26th: We have two wonderful events lined up:

At 11:00 am, join us for Talking with Your Doctor, where you'll learn the best ways to communicate with your doctor and ensure your health concerns are heard and addressed.

Later in the evening, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, let’s wrap up the month with some fun at our Line Dancing event. Dust off your boots, grab your friends, and get ready to dance the night away!

We look forward to your active participation and engagement in these events. For additional information or questions, please call 610-642-9370, email us at info@palmseniors.org or visit our website at www.palmseniors.org.
