Hi all,

June is busting out all over! Or so the song says! I’m looking forward to warmer days and being outside more. I am sure you are as well. We are so happy to have you back after being closed for 2 weeks due to a spike in COVID. We had to reschedule some events from May to June.

The String Art class will return this month. Please make sure to sign up for it in the Senior Center.

We are having an Ice Cream social after lunch on the 8th of June, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care of Melrose, MA. They will be here to talk about the many services they offer to seniors. Andrew Wallace will be here on June 9th to talk about an exciting program that GLSS offers to help seniors connect electronically with different programs and classes as well as family and friends by way of using your TV that is at no cost to you. Please mark your calendar to hear what Andrew has to say.

We are also planning to go grocery shopping again, every other Friday, starting June 10th. The COA van will leave at 12:30 pm and go to Market Basket in Lynn. We need people to sign up in advance at the Senior Center so please do so no later than the Thursday before.

Later in the month, we will go on a cruise up the Essex River. Please mark your calendars for the event. We will go to lunch at Farnham’s in Ipswich and then head over to the river for the cruise. Should be a great day!

And finally, we celebrate Father’s Day! Happy Father’s Day to all dads, granddads, uncles who are father figures and all the men in our lives who have helped mold and make us become the best version of ourselves no matter what the age!

Lots to do this month!

See you at the beach.
Mary
