A Senior Moment
By Louis Vaccaro | Posted March 30, 2023
At the March Montgomery Senior Organization Meeting, Caitlyn Meador and Chris Brown from Foothill Acres Rehab and Nursing Center led the group in a craft project. Each group member created a beautiful stenciled wood decoration. The group also had the opportunity to learn from Nipun Patel, a local IT consultant. Patel helped the members with their smartphones and computers, keeping Montgomery's seniors up to date with new advancements in technology. Patel also offers individual tech appointments for seniors in the new Montgomery Township library.

In 2023, the Montgomery Senior Organization launched the organization’s first website with help from Herb Jung, the group’s secretary and webmaster. The new website will facilitate the communication between the executive team and members. Although technology can be a challenge for many seniors, the executive team believes that the website will help the group grow.
The Montgomery Senior Organization has several upcoming programs and initiatives. Seniors can learn about all events, trips, and programs on their website.
Discounted theater tickets to shows by the Hillsborough Somerset Valley Players.

The group is collecting long sleeve woven shirts for Arm in Arm, a local nonprofit. There are collection bins at the Otto Kauffman Community Center on Skillman Road. Donations are accepted until April 15.
The guest speaker at the next meeting on April 13 will be Lauren Wasilauski. She is the open space & stewardship director at Montgomery Township Parks and Recreation. Wasilauski will discuss Montgomery’s pathways and highlight a variety of programs and volunteering opportunities such as the Stream Cleanup Saturday, April 15 and Earth Day on Sunday, April 23. The meeting will also include light refreshments and bingo games with special prizes supplied by Caitlyn Meador. Members and non-members are welcome.
