Lincoln to stop by senior center in June

Noted Lincoln reenactor Steve Holgate to appear


by: COURTESY OF FRANCOIS DIASCORN - Steve Holgate applies a beard as he prepares to take on the personna of Abraham Lincoln at the Sherwood Senior Center in June. If you haven’t been there yet, dig those canoe’s out of the garage, don your life-jackets and get over to the Marjorie Stewart Center. We are a warm, inviting place to come in out of the rain.

We also have a lot of fun things to do in addition to a nice lunch.

Try our twice-a-week bingo, Wednesday afternoon dances (with live music) and get lots of help with your knitting, crocheting, and computers.

We have lectures, once-a-week movies, art and exercise classes. You might also find that handmade present for someone from our gift shop.

Last month we had Mah Jong lessons and now we have some regulars who may want to play a game or two with you. On Wednesday mornings we have a “Write your Life” group that enjoys new faces. Bring you canvas for our art classes.

Our center has a substantial library of novels for you to read, and a cozy corner for reading.

Not only will you meet new friends, but you will something here you like to do.

If you come several times you may even see our small herd of deer that visit the center almost every day.

We are particularly excited this month to welcome, on the Friday, June 13, before Father’s Day, Steve Holgate and his “A Town Hall with Lincoln” program. After a short introduction by Mr. Holgate about Lincoln beginning at 12:30 p.m., he will take on the personae of our 16th president and conduct his town Hall Meeting. Pretend you were living in the 1860s and ask Mr. Lincoln questions about those times. Please call and sign up 503-625-5644.

But in any case, drop in for lunch, for warm and friendly conversation. Our regular drop-ins will be here to welcome you, answer questions about our activities, classes, and other programs.

We are easy to find at 21907 SW Sherwood Blvd, back in the trees. Give us a call 503-625-5644 for information. Don’t forget we have meeting/activity rooms to rent for your special needs.
