Senior Continued from page 22 center is has successfully out- grown its quarters "We are looking at an expan- sion," Morch said. "We have a verbal agreement with the city to expand onto the adjoining lot. And, yes, that means another cap- ital campaign!" Activities for all The Cape Henlopen Senior Center has earned a reputation for the artwork that comes out of the different classes. Oils and watercolors produced by members hang in the main fel- lowship room, and members regu- larly bring home awards from se- nior art shows. There is a room dedicated to ce- ramics. Woodcarving class is an- other popular activity and tole painting could be in the near fu- ture. The center has its own band, Four Hits and a Miss. Morch said that senior citizens are very health conscious, and the fitness programs are some of the most popular. Guest speakers, frequently doc- tors and professionals in health fields, are regularly on the calen- dar. In stride with the times, the cen- ter added computer classes, and 47 people signed up for the first class. "Our classes and special activi- ties are very important," Morch said. "But, I think I am as proud of some of our services as I am of anything. We have an outreach coordinator who keeps people aware of social and medical ser- vices. The Nemours Clinic oper- ates through of our facility. "And our transportation pro- gram is wonderful. Twice a week, our driver picks up members in Rehoboth, Dewey Beach and Lewes and takes them grocery shopping, to the malls, the bank, the post office, out to lunch. It's a great service; many people would not be able to get out otherwise." The center executive director is the main cheerleader for the Cape Henlopen Senior Center, but she had company last week in singing the praises of the center. The Rev. Joseph Robinson was present to lead blessings and May- or Sam Cooper, Sen. George Bunting, Rep. John Schroeder (D- Lewes) and Frank Raskauskas, Sussex County recorder of deeds, joined in the 30th anniversary cel- ebration. Their presence prompt- ed Morch to remind them of the success of the center that leads to on-going funding needs. And she invites everyone to vis- it and join in the activities of the center. "It's different here everyday," she said. "No matter what kind of dark mood you might be in when you come in, somebody here al- ways makes you laugh."
