Welcome to Silver Linings at Old Bridge (formerly known as the senior center). Our goal is to remain attractive to those of you who are already members and to attract those who are now just retiring and looking for a place to go. Our new image in the public eye eliminates the stereotypes of "older adults" as poor, lonely, and frail. We are more vibrant and active here than ever before. We hope to capture a much greater audience of members simply by taking advantage of the power of words and leveraging the creativity of the mature mind.
So our hope and goal is to be the "silver lining" for our members each and every day. The term "silver lining" emphasizes the hopeful side of a situation that might seem gloomy on the surface. The common expression "every cloud has a silver lining" means a comforting or hopeful aspect of an otherwise unhappy situation.
SENIOR CENTERS: BUILDING MOMENTUM
Growing | Learning | Giving | Connecting
Join us this September as we celebrate Senior Center Month! This year's theme was chosen to highlight how senior centers build momentum for aging well in their communities. We know the research and importance behind CONNECTING older adults with others, and that making friends matters. That LEARNING new languages and skills and exercising helps care for your body. That GIVING back at the senior center and within the community fosters purpose and a more meaningful life. And that as long as each of us lives, we want to continue GROWING to be the most we can be. Senior Centers have built a holistic experience where all of this is possible. This year, let's celebrate the many ways our center builds momentum for people's health, economic security, and independence.
