I am really excited to put on the Oscars-themed dance for the elders at Casa de Manana. I remember that back in middle school, I wanted to join our Associated Student Body organization because one of the fun activities they participated in was decorating, planning, and hosting school dances. Although I did not have the chance to participate in the organization and missed out on the opportunity to put on a dance, now I have the chance to do so for the Life Course Scholars Program. I feel as if we are adequately prepared at this point in time to put on the dance, and I cannot wait to see how it all turns out. I really hope the seniors enjoy the event as well as our company. I always love having a reason to get dressed up and go to a special event, so I am looking forward to the dance! Regarding our individual Healthy Aging Projects, I discussed Kyle's idea with him about offering a painting activity at Bayside Community Center and we came up with additional details that we may be able to apply to planning out the project. Since Bayside Community Center is such a big space with plenty of walls, we are considering putting up the seniors' art work on display for all to view. Additionally, we are considering hiring or having a voluntary art teacher come in, such as one who hosts the wine and painting classes, to provide step by step directions in case elders do not feel comfortable painting independently. Having an instructor would ensure that everyone has a quality-looking piece at the end of the activity. If we can get more of our classmates to join in on our project, we may also consider having a potting event with plants at Bayside Community Center as well.
