Membership Spotlight: Jesse and Rita Hodsdon Live Life to the Fullest!
By Lisa Dollar-Covert
Jesse and Rita Hodson have been coming to the Senior Center for almost 20 years. Rita claims, “Membership gives us a sense of belonging.” They both volunteer and take classes. Rita says, “We volunteer wherever needed and find it rewarding. Many of our friendships have developed while participating in the activities we enjoy.” For example, “Our French lessons led us to taking trips to Europe with the French group, twice to France and once to Belgium. We square dance and have traveled to outside venues with fellow dancers. I sing with the Senior Singers and we go to nursing and assisted living homes and sing for them. They enjoy the classic songs we sing and sometimes sing along. Jesse joins us occasionally to take photos.”
“When I tell someone that I regularly go to the Senior Center,” Rita stated, “I get from people, Oh! Only old people go there! I have to admit that a few of us are old, but we are living life to the fullest as we participate in daily activities.”
Rita enjoys that the center has exercises classes for mind and body, creative programs, and opportunities to make many friends. She has found a creative outlet as well as a volunteer, making birthday cards for regular attendees and serving as a Receptionist. To discover opportunities to belong, enrich your mind, body, and creative side, and develop friendships, come to the Senior Center and take a tour or call 891-4000 for more information.
