Super Senior DayMay 25, 2017
This was the 44th year that North Shore Senior Center hosted “Super Senior Day,” a day dedicated to honoring senior volunteers. Today, 40 honorees and their guests visited the Center to enjoy a luncheon, live entertainment and a ceremony where each “Super Senior” was awarded a commemorative pin and a personalized certificate.
“At Super Senior Day it is heartwarming and sometimes overwhelming to hear what people have done in their lives. In 1982, I was in the audience when my mother’s name was called as an honored recipient. Receiving this award was a highlight in her life. When she died 17 years ago, I found the pin in her jewelry box. It meant a lot to her and continues to do so for me,” said Vivian Mitchel, project manager and program manager, travel & enrichment in the Center’s Lifelong Learning Department.
Honorees were greeted with flowers and punch in the Atrium, followed by lunch in the Golder Dining Room. Guests adjourned into the Cohn Auditorium for entertainment by Sweet Reminder, who performed best hits from the 40s and 50s. Following the performance, Stuart Smith, North Shore Senior Center’s board chair, Jordan Luhr, executive director, and Vivian read each honoree’s name and a short description about his or her volunteer experience. The directors of Senior Centers from around the area handed out the certificates and pins.
The annual event is a team effort with the Center’s staff members and volunteers welcoming our guests, volunteers setting the tables, 7th graders volunteering as waitstaff, and our volunteer pianist playing in the Atrium. “Everyone’s participation makes the day a special event,” concluded Vivian.
North Shore Senior Center would like to thank our sponsor, Right at Home, for their generous support and for helping us continue the tradition of recognition for outstanding community seniors. We would like to extend another special thank you to: Saints, Faith Hope & Charity Catholic School 7th Grade Students; Barbara’s Balloons; Edwards Florist; Food for Thought of Lincolnwood; Buddy Schreiber at the piano; Jill Becker, Dickinson Hall — Lake Forest Lake Bluff Senior Center; Jaymi Blickhahn, Niles Senior Center; Denise Blinick, The East Wing Glenview Senior Center; Luanne McMillen, Frisbie Senior Center; Mary Swanson, Maine Township Maine Streamers; Leslie Wilson, Levy Senior Center.
