Golf Outing July 18, 2013 – Huge Success! Thank you to all who attended!
Each day, a dozen senior citizens eagerly wait for the doors of the Arlington Heights Senior Center to open. By the end of that day, 500-600 will have come through those same doors. They come to spend time with their friends, to get flu shots, to exercise, learn Spanish, get their taxes done, obtain help picking out the best Medicare Supplement, have lunch, arrange for meals on wheels, obtain information, referral and assistance, arrange for transportation to their medical appointments, shoot billiards, work out in the athletic club, Zumba dance, get their blood pressure taken in the clinic, read a book in the reading room, take a computer class in our lab, build something in the woodshop or simply sit by the fireplace or the patio’s fountain.
Since its inception in 1981, Arlington Heights Senior Center, Inc. has partnered with the Arlington Heights Senior Center to support a comprehensive senior citizens services network. To this end, “Inc.” serves as the organization whose purpose is to broaden the economic foundation of the senior center by raising funds and receiving donations from diverse sources, including, but not limited to, organizations, foundations, businesses and private sources.
Arlington Heights Senior Center, Inc. has cast its benevolence over the entire senior center, from the welcoming banners touting our national accreditation and day lilies in the parking lot, to the attractively furnished lobby to the specialized equipment throughout the senior center, to the buildout and equipping of the woodshop. While there could be an Arlington Heights Senior Center without Arlington Heights Senior Center, Inc., it could never be the success it is today nor the welcoming “home away from home” for our guests it has become with “Inc.’s” support.
