A post-Valentine dinner-dance was held for MC retirees and senior citizens from different communities last February 17 to formally launch the Senior Summer Program of Miriam College. A live band and Music Center’s own talents were especially invited to serenade guests with music from the “Golden Era.” The rest of the night was punctuated with exciting games and raffle prizes and naming of the “Nestor and Nida” of the Night.
Sponsors of the activity were Clarity, Sun Cellular, Anlene, Alba Restaurant, DAWN, INSA, CPE and WAGI. This activity is a collaboration of the Planning and Development Office, the Integrated Lifestyle and Wellness (ILAW) Center, and the Gerontology Program of the Social Science Department, College of Arts and Sciences.
Under the school’s LEAD Program, various courses for senior citizens will be offered this summer including healthy cooking and wellness, culinary tour, green cooking, art of bonsai, farm visit, pottery making, fresh flower arrangement, Ikebana, social networking lessons, and painting (offered by ILAW). Summer courses will start April 2012.
