“This spring I have started watercolor and drawing classes at the Senior Center and what a joy. I signed up for the Watercolor Class because I have always heard it was the hardest medium to do. In this phase of my life, “why not” do the impossible. I left Nicole’s watercolor class with a picture of sky, mountains, and yes evergreen trees, and even my granddaughter could identify all of the objects! Each January, I take out the sketch pad and drawing book and try to create what I see in a picture. Rod’s drawing class gave technique of shapes, shading, and a new aspect in how I look at a tree, house and a flower in my life. I do hope that the Senior Center will continue to have artists like Nicole and Road present their talents and gifts to people like me who have found meaning and accomplishment in these lessons.”
“Five days a week, you can’t find a better noon meal, for the price, than at the Burleigh County Senior Center. It’s as close to home cookin’ as you’ll get anywhere. The nutrition staff are not only efficient, but they are a congenial bunch. I’ve seen them serve over 200 seniors a savory, succulent meal in one-half hour! The Center offers more than good repast; E.G., an expert medical pro will do your nails like a high priced spa. In addition, they have a neat store, a library, computers, outreach services, nurses, as well as providing assorted activities to enhance the social needs of the senior crowd. A Senior Center side benefit is the wisdom and history most will share with others."
"The Senior Center means everything to me- I’m alone. Made good friends here that care about me and I them. Good nutritious, balanced meals- I enjoy the activities, music, and parties. I would recommend to everybody and I have brought in friends to experience the Center."
