Many of the people who regularly come to the Samuel S. DeVico Senior Center in Cape May Court House never imagined they would be a member of a "senior center." But like many of the other members, they have found the center to be a warm and companionable place where people of a certain age can find others of similar interests and laughter seems to be the order of the day.
Whether its zumba, tai chi, bridge, pinochle, pool or the Knit Knackers, everyone seems to find an activity that meets their needs. And many participate in several activities and/or events sponsored by the center at 23 Romney Place (and the corner of Magnolia Drive). For those who are interested, a monthly calendar of scheduled activities is available at the center or you can call (609) 465-8865 for information.
The center's director, Marilyn Miller, and her assistants, Arline Angelone and Janet Williams, do an outstanding job of making everyone feel at home and the center is always beautifully decorated according to the season.
As one member recently said, "I felt lost when my husband died. I'm so glad I decided to come to the center. It has given me something to look forward to and I really enjoy the company of the other members."
Undoubtedly members of the senior centers in Lower Cape, Ocean City, North Wildwood and Upper Cape feel the same way about their center and the companionship they find there.
There is no better time than the Christmas season to thank all the folks who make these centers a welcoming home away from home where the spirit of Christmas seems to abide throughout the year.
