Blanding Seniors plan a host of activities

Seniors are an important part of our community.  They provide continuity, stability and history.  They provide experience, knowledge and wisdom. 
 As a payback for their years of contributions, concerned citizens want to provide opportunities for friendship, activities and emotional support.  Thus, the formation of the Blanding Senior Activities.
By engaging our seniors, we reduce the risk of depression, anxiety, lower blood pressure and improved cognitive functions.  In short, these activities improve the quality of life for all of us.
All events are free.  Please make careful note of the various locations.  For more information, please email Or go to the Facebook Page Blanding Senior Activities.
