Become an expert on living well

Photo Credit: SUBMITTED PHOTO - September is National Senior Center Month. The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center has three contests going to celebrate.

It is National Senior Center Month and to show how seniors are experts at living well we had three contests. The first contest was to write your secret to living well, and we have posted the responses around the building.

One of the other contests was a pedometer challenge: See who can record the most steps from Sept. 2 to 25, available to the first 100 participants.

You might still be able to enter; call the center to find out.

The final contest is a scavenger hunt. There is a list of 25 items or questions that need to be found or answered by Sept. 25.

All contests are open to members, and we will have party at 5 p.m. Sept. 30 to celebrate National Senior Center Month during which we will announce the winners.

Everyone is invited, and snacks, cake and punch will be served.

Music will be provided by Tom Stroud and Company.

Call 503-635-3758 to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations. The LOACC is located at 505 G. Ave.

Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
