The Palatine Township Senor Center was a busy place on Monday Oct. 1, during its first Fall Festival. The event highlighted the senior center's programs and services and showcased its supporters to members and the Palatine community.
Over 80 older adults enjoyed free doughnuts and apple cider, blood pressure readings, chair massage, ceramics, senior fitness screenings, chair yoga, quilting, painting, line dancing, Wii sports, senior entitlement screenings and Medicare information. Delicious caramel apples from Morkes Chocolates were sold and more than 50 people stayed for lunch at the "Our Place Cafe." There were also many grateful winners of some fantastic raffle items which were donated by center supporters.
Twenty businesses were available, offering medical, financial and legal assistance. Center supporters participating at the Fall Fest included: AgeOptions, Alexian Brothers, American Chartered Bank, BMO Harris Bank, Brandt Financial Concepts, Inc., Comfort Keepers, Cornerstone National Bank and Trust Company, Edward Jones, Foundation for Wellness Professionals, Friendship Village, Lavelle Law, Ltd., Lutheran Home, HCR-ManorCare, The Moorings, Northwest Community Hospital, Northwest Suburban United Way, Palatine Park District, Palatine Police Department, Palatine Township, Silverado Senior Living and Whitehall of Deerfield.
