The Activity and Dining Centers have a variety of activities and creative opportunities for you to participate in. From painting, card making, and sewing to dancing, creative writing and wood carving – there is truly something for everyone. When talking to some of the participants, they share their stories of how they discovered the right fit for them. Some have had an affinity for the activity their entire life, while many others came to learn the new skill later in life. It is never too early or too late to learn a new skill. You might learn of hidden talents you never knew you had! As a bonus, you might run into old friends or make new friends along the way.
One of my newfound favorite forms of art is wood carving. The Sanford Activity and Dining Center is the hot spot for wood carving, especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You will truly be amazed to watch the skilled carvers transform a piece of wood into a figurine, landscape scene, or toy. See the picture to the right for an example. I commissioned Lee Gerovac to complete a carving as a wedding gift for my husband. It is a scene from a hiking trail where we got engaged. How special!!
Whether you are looking to learn a new skill or catch up with some friends, we welcome you to spend time with us! We strive to create a welcoming, warm, fun environment for all.
