It Happens at My Senior Center...
Life is Good at the Senior Center by Maggi Ferguson, member and volunteer
“Let’s face it, as a senior, our lives are changed and we must adapt to those changes and do what we can to live a good and healthy life for as long as we can: that means keeping the brain active, learning new things, socializing, and exercising. Take the opportunities that the Cupertino Senior Center offers and take steps to get involved.”
