Jennifer's message to residents is "I am excited to be here at the Libertyville Senior Center and want to meet everyone so I encourage all Seniors to stop in, say Hi and let me know what type of activities interest you the most. This is your center and I want there to be events and activities that make you want to come see us every week. I would also love to expand our Libertyville Diner selections to more local restaurant choices so come tell us your favorite places to eat in town so that hopefully we can add them to the menu rotation. I am so hoping to have a large lunch crowd every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as well as on special event days like the monthly Birthday Bashes.
