Older Americans Month

The Senior Center has scheduled three programs in celebration of Older Americans Month.

• Trivia Day, 1 p.m. May 23, Room 10: Team up with four to six friends and compete to see who has the most knowledge of the obscure, the interesting and the downright random. The first-place team will receive a prize. Light snacks and beverages will be served.

Register to reserve your team’s spot by Friday. Cost is $1 for members, $2 for nonmembers.

• Photo Scavenger Hunt, all month: Team members will take digital photos of themselves all over Los Altos performing various assigned activities. Each photo is worth a certain number of points and should be emailed to the coordinator once the team has completed all of the photo clues. Each team needs a minimum of two players. Sign up at the front desk.

• Mocktail Party: 1 p.m. May 30, Room 10: Celebrate the culmination of Older Americans Month and view the results of the Photo Scavenger Hunt. Snacks will be served.
