JASA Wishes its Seniors

BY AMANDA MOSES

Every few months JASA Starrett Senior Center hosts a birthday party to celebrate the wonderful lives of its members. JASA Director Angela Blyakher believes that it’s important to hold these parties because it uplifts the seniors living in the community and provides them with the opportunity to share stories about themselves, socialize with friends, and dance.

In honor of those born in April, May, and June, JASA held a fun-filled party with music by DJ Mike Minsky. The festivities began with many of the seniors forming dance circles, holding each other’s hands, and swaying to the beats, while others twirled and shimmied like all-star dancers. Age certainly was not a factor at this birthday event. Everyone had a youthful glow and a well-spirited attitude.

At the end of the party, birthday celebrants were given goodie bags and all attendees were able to enjoy delectable sweets at the Venetian dessert table.
