Senior Services

Senior Services Chair 2022-2023: Cathy Sutton
If you believe that wisdom comes with age, Senior Services may be able to teach you a thing or two. Meeting eight times a year on the third Wednesday of the month, club members present a program and a workshop for local senior groups under the direction of the Senior Services  committee chair.

Lots of proud and cheerful faces were displayed on Wednesday, December 21 at the Ocean County Southern Service Center in Manahawkin. The Garden Club of Long Beach Island’s Senior Services Committee gathered their clippers and greens to help seniors design beautiful festive mugs. The group sifted through fresh flowers, ornaments and other decorations to use on their  arrangements to spread holiday cheer!

After the seniors created their designs, they were able to chose a dried flower teacup arrangement as a holiday gift from the Garden Club of LBI. The next meeting with the seniors will be Wednesday, March 15, 2023. Committee members who attended this event were JoAnne McKee, Norma Parfitt, Cathy Sutton, chair of the committee, Gail Palumbo, Paula Cafone and Judy Lipman. 

Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

Cathy Sutton, Senior Services Committee chair, started the class by building a fresh flower arrangement and explaining the basics. The seniors created beautiful arrangements for their Thanksgiving table with our members’ help. One would have thought you had entered a floral shop!
