Club 108 Celebrates Five Years
In June, Club 108 celebrated its five-year anniversary in style with dozens of past and present attendees, caregivers and volunteers. The event which took place at the Senior Center, featured a performance by Mr. Magic and lunch from Sugar River Pizza Company. Club 108 was established early in 2015 by Rita Martin (former Program Assistant) and Senior Center staff to fill a need for individuals experiencing early memory loss to have a regular activity of light mental exercise and socialization in a comfortable setting.
This group in turn, gives their caregivers a worry-free break from their daily responsibilities of caregiving. Mary and Richard Stauffacher (picture right, bottom) attended the event and Mary shared that Richard attended the group for about six months before the pandemic and said “he really enjoys the group. The regular schedule and familiar faces works very well for him.” Lou and Marge Slamar (pictured right, middle) have been regular volunteers through the years and the group has been led by Jan Paul, Senior Center Program Assistant (pictured above) since Fall 2017. Jan Weaver, a Verona resident who attended the Caregivers group when she was caring for her mom said this at the event, “Club 108 saved my life. It literally saved my life, this group along with all the the help and resources I received from the Senior Center and the Caregivers group. I couldn’t have done it without this support.”
