Spring may have officially arrived in late March, but Mother Nature found fit to continue some cold and dreary weather for us.

But now, we are looking at a new month of happenings to cheer the Aberdeen Senior Center. The spring flowers have already appeared.

To start off April, the Diabetes Support Group is on the calendar to meet on Tuesday, April 2 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. This group is facilitated by a group of retired nurses who give their time to supply diet tips and other helpful information.

Following on Thursday, April 4, from 10 a.m. until noon, there is blood pressure screening scheduled.

Friday, April 5, as is always on the first Friday of the month, there is Men's Discussion Group from 9:30 until 10:15 a.m.

On Monday, April 15, there will be Senior Council Meeting from 11 a.m. until noon. This is the perfect opportunity to come and get to know what the senior council does, and get involved.
