Seniors take the spotlight at the Lolly Hansen Senior Center with a variety of events in May during Older Americans Month.

The festivities kicked off at the senior center, 375 E. Ninth St., with an open house and health fair on Wednesday, May 1.

The health fair had 35 vendors gathered in the center’s dining room to hand out information on topics from senior housing to nutrition.

Senior advocacy groups and public safety groups were on hand to provide information on programs and senior resources.

Seniors could have their blood sugar tested as a screening for diabetes.

Older Americans Month events continue with an ice cream social at the senior center on Friday, May 3 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Seniors can put on their dancing shoes during the Country Spring Dance from 3 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7.

A series of speakers will provide seniors with health and security information. The first speaker will present a fraud prevention discussion from 11:30 a.m. to noon on May 13.

Other topics later in the month will cover life after retirement and information about strokes.

Senior activities will also include a barbecue lunch on May 17 and a senior awareness field trip on May 30.
