National Senior Citizens’ Day
Wednesday, August 21, 2019 | 10:00am - 4:30pm


Come celebrate National Senior Citizens' Day with us!  

10:00 – 11:15 am - Visit with Little Man Chocolate

Start your day by visiting with Little Man Chocolate, a 12-year old miniature horse owned by Jeanne McCusker of Home Instead Senior Care. He loves to go on outings and he loves people!  Being groomed and eating peppermints or an occasional ice cream cone are also among his favorite things! Please stop by to say hello and pick up a goody bag, courtesy of Home Instead Senior Care.

11:30 am – 12:45 pm - Monthly Luncheon - REGISTRATION CLOSED

Catered by Harvest Moon, this month’s menu is: classic Caesar salad; oven roasted chicken with grilled apple and butternut squash, whipped potatoes with roasted garlic and rosemary, sautéed green beans, buttermilk biscuits, and bread pudding bites.  Vegetarian option available by request: Wild mushroom, sage and white bean cassoulet. 

1:00 – 3:00 pm - Movie: Space Cowboys

Relax with friends and enjoy a showing of Space Cowboys, an action/adventure film starring Hollywood icons Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner.  We’ll provide the popcorn!

3:30 – 4:30 pm - SPCA Senior Dogs celebrate Senior Citizens' Day too!

End the day with some canine companionship.  Katie Roche, Humane Education Coordinator of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA, will bring some adoptable senior dogs to visit; you might find a “fur-ever” friend.
