Celebrate Halloween at the Lexington Senior Center

Lexington, NC – Davidson County Department of Senior Services Senior Dynamics program will host 2 separate events to celebrate the Halloween season.  A pumpkin carving workshop will be held from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. October 30 and the following day a “Let’s Make a Deal” Halloween Social will take place also from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. October 31.  Both events will be held at the Lexington Senior Center, 555-B West Center St. Ext and are open to Davidson County residents 55 and older. 

 
Registration is $10 for the pumpkin carving workshop and includes all supplies for carving and a pumpkin. Registration for the “Let’s Make a Deal” social is just $5.  Preregistration is required for both events by October 28.


A friendly competition will be held for the best carved pumpkin during the October 30 workshop.  Judges will decide on first, second and third place winners.  The best carvers will receive free admission to the Halloween Social the following day.


Based on the popular TV game show, participants of the October 31 Halloween Social will play a version of “Let’s Make a Deal.”   “You’ve all played along at home and yelled at your TV telling contestants what the best deal is, so why not come out and play for yourself.  This time you can officially decide whether the offer is good enough,” says Samantha Lane, Senior Activities Coordinator.  Come dressed in your favorite costume and celebrate Halloween with prizes, food and fun.  This event is sponsored by Piedmont Crossing.


Special event sponsorships fund a portion of event expenses.  Senior Services strives to provide quality programming with minimal cost to participants.  In the event of financial hardship, seniors may ask to speak with a senior center manager and request their participation be waived.


Senior Services, a division of Davidson County Government, was established in 1975.  The organization’s mission is to offer an array of programs and services to older adults regarding their well-being, independence, involvement in their community and the ability for them to remain in their own home.
