The Springhaven Club in Nether Providence was full of joy recently as members of the Schoolhouse Center in Folsom – and their guests – socialized, ate, danced, and visited with Santa Claus at the center’s 40th annual holiday celebration, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.
The Schoolhouse Center is a part of Senior Community Services, which is drawing its year-long, 40th-anniversary celebration to a close this month. Senior Community Services is a nonprofit founded by Executive Director Arthur Weisfeld in 1977 through the joint efforts of the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA) and concerned citizens.
SCS has grown into a strong community organization, encompassing four multi-purpose senior centers in Ridley Township, Chester, Darby Township, and Darby, as well as a broad array of services for homebound older persons throughout Delaware County. Nearly 7,000 individuals made 83,743 visits to SCS Centers in Delco last year.
SCS celebrated its 40th year with a progressive dinner to all four of its centers in September, a gala at Paxon Hollow Golf Club in October, and other special events.
