February hopping for seniors

February’s list of activities at the Senior Center is endless.

A couple of things to be watching for and to get signed up for next month are the “Polka Dot and Parfait” event and the “Ladies Valentine Tea and Storytelling Event.”


The Polka Dot and Parfait takes place Thursday, Feb. 7, from 12:30-2 p.m.

We encourage you to wear polka dots. Even the center will be decorated in dots. You’ll go home with dots in front of your face.

Tasty fruit and yogurt parfaits will be made for your enjoyment and we will have polka music and polka dancing.

Cost is $2 to attend.


The Ladies Valentine Tea and Storytelling Event, held Thursday, Feb. 14, from 9:30-11:30 a.m., is an event hosted by the Town of Jonesborough at the International Storytelling Center.

Enjoy a variety of teas, light pastries and a storytelling performance by Linda Poland while relaxing in the ISC’s parlor.

Cost is $5 and you will receive a coupon book for shopping and eating lunch downtown. Seating is limited so reserve your space today. Lunch and shopping afterward for those who want to.


We ask each of you to invite a friend to join you at the center.

As we begin plans for the new center, we look forward to more and more members coming into the facility since we will have so much to offer. Get started early.
