   Students from the 8th grade class at St. Stephen's School visited the Golden Age Center on Friday, February 2, 2018 to spend time and play a variety of games, iPad fun, and other fun surprises, with the Golden Age members. A special treat was a student who did magic which kept the golden agers in suspense, wondering, "how did he do that!"


GAC Member Finds Forever Friend - February 2018


   Look who got a forever home and a forever friend! It's Golden Age member Shirley Martin. After Shirley had expressed interest in wanting a dog as a companion and new family member, Golden Age staff member Natalie Grunzweig took Shirley to the Niagara County SPCA after work and picked up Max, a hound mix, age 5, to become Shirley's forever friend. Max is adjusting well to lots of treats, cuddles, and love in his new home. Special thanks to Natalie for taking the time to bring smiles and love to our seniors in our community.
