Join in the fun at the Maplewood Senior Center

MAPLEWOOD, NJ — On Friday, May 3, the Maplewood Senior Center celebrated Cinco de Mayo a bit early with a delicious lunch, followed by a dessert of churro cupcakes. The senior citizens, who were joined by the Maplewood Community Services staff and Mayor Vic DeLuca, were then surprised by a mariachi band entering with a thunderous melody of song and dance.

Some upcoming senior events at the Maplewood Senior Center are:

  • Senior Fitness Day on Friday, May 17, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.;
  • A ziti luncheon on Wednesday, June 5, at 11:30 a.m.; and
  • A summer kickoff barbeque on Wednesday, June 19, at 11:30 a.m.

Also, on Tuesday, June 25, seniors will depart at 10 a.m. for the Spirit of New Jersey cruise; the fee includes bus, lunch and cruise.
