Lunch & Learns, Lifelong Learning
All Lunch & Learns are 10:30am - 12:30pm and offer lively and engaging programs for adults 55+. Each includes exhibitors, health screenings, and lunch. These events are a program of the Tallahassee Senior Center & Foundation, funded by the Leon County Board of County Commissioners. $6 entry fee.
Attendees have a lot of FUN at our monthly Leon County Lunch & Learn events, but there are other important reasons to attend. One of the most valuable services we offer is no-cost health screenings. We strive to provide blood glucose and blood pressure screenings at each L & L. There's also hearing, vision, oral health and other various screenings throughout the year. These prove invaluable to many of our participants, some of whom have financial and mobility issues that prevent them from accessing these services elsewhere.
Home health care companies and caring volunteer nurses are there each month to monitor the health and well-being of participants. It is not unusual for someone to discover that their blood pressure is high, or their blood sugar is out of range. While this can be disturbing, at least it's discovered! Knowing is always better than not when it comes to critical health information. Become a regular at a Lunch & Learn event in a community near you. Discover activities to become more engaged and independent! For more information contact Susan Davis at 891-4065.
NOTE: There will be no Lunch & Learns in July
The following sites are used for outreach to various community centers, bringing the Senior Center closer to your neighborhood:
Allegro - 4501 Shannon Lakes Drive
Bradfordville at Wildwood Presbyterian Fellowship Hall - 100 Ox Bottom Road
Bradfordville Lunch & Learn participant Donna Guthrie enjoys a visit with exhibitor Alexandria Thompson from the Leon County Tax Collector's Office. Access to local services and resources is helpful to many of the participants, but what keeps them coming back is the friendly atmosphere and the chance to connect with other active, mature adults.
"I learn so much every time I come," says Mary Johnson who frequents the Woodville Lunch and Learn. She adds that "I didn't know many of the other people at first, but everyone is so friendly. Now, I can't wait to come each month to visit with other people in my community. The fellowship is something to look forward to!"
