The Institute for Integrative Aging, part of the Sebago Center at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine, recently hosted the first Silver Lunch of the summer. The lunch was enjoyed by 66 older adults from the community who came together for social interaction and a local, healthy meal.
More Silver Lunches will be held each Wednesday through August 14, 2019 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm in the Stone Barn on St. Joseph’s Sebago Lake campus.
Chef Mary Paine prepares a farm-to-table, three-course dining experience with fresh ingredients from local farms.
“We are aware that older adults in rural Maine, and everywhere, face the challenge of social isolation as they age. It is our intent to combat this form of loneliness, and Silver Lunches are intended to be a fun way to gather and build our community of older adults.”Heather DiYenno, Director of the Institute for Integrative Aging
Silver Lunches, along with our other activities and programs at the Sebago Center, are open to the public. The Sebago Center is an initiative of the College designed to actively welcome the community to the campus to help achieve the strategic goal of strengthening the College community and leveraging campus assets in support of the region.
Silver Lunch tickets and additional information about the Institute for Integrative Aging at the Sebago Center are available online.
