10 Year Anniversary of Brookletts Place

Share

Join the Brookletts Place Talbot County Senior Center staff, members and volunteers as they celebrate 10 years in their current building. Dedicated July 2009, the current facility was built under the leadership of the former manager, Jessie S. Caldwell.

The original building was the home of the Old Salt Seafood Company. The Talbot County Government acquired ownership of the property, renovated and opened it in June 1988. The building remained the home to the Center until Mrs. Caldwell and her staff realized that they were outgrowing the building and began the process of seeking funds for a new building. During the building process, the Center relocated to Maryland Avenue.

Brookletts Place is a “place to connect” and a “place to thrive”. They are an active senor center dedicated to enriching the lives of those sixty years of age or older, from all walks of life. It is an environmentally sensitive facility with such amenities as a yoga room, exercise room, computer lab with internet access, media room, large dining room, game room. Multi-purpose room, roof terrace and a state- of- the- art green roof.

Join us July 8 – 13, for a week filled with food, fun and fellowship. Silent auction items will be on display all week, there will be a scratch off lottery raffle, cake, punch, tour of the facility, art show and sale, and community partners expo.

In addition, the following will be on hand to provide entertainment at 12 noon: Monday, DJ Chuckie; Tuesday, The Jones Boys and Thursday, DJ Steve Moody. There will a free food demo with Farmers Market Coupon Raffle at 11 am Wednesday.

Friday’s Parking Lot Party will consist of music by Revive Sound Productions, LLC, line dancing and Zumba Gold demonstrations, musical presentation by Emma Baily student of Mike Elzey Studio and much more, as well as an opportunity to purchase an exterior car wash for $10 and receive a free hamburger or hot dog. Chubb’s Grilling on the Move will also be selling other food to include his famous ribs.

We will conclude the week with a Champagne Reception and Dance with music by Sterling Dorn and the Tooo Smooth Dudes Trio. Mr. Dorn is the 2011 MD Senior Idol Winner. This will be a fundraiser for the Talbot County Senior Centers and will be held 5 pm until 8 pm at the Center. The suggested donation is $40 per person.
