PILOT MOUNTAIN The sound of music will be returning to the Pilot Mountain Senior Center tonight with the addition of a new weekly program designed to provide local seniors with a night of fellowship and fun.
The program is being provided in response to suggestions by seniors, following last years cancellation of the centers popular Tuesday night jam session. The new format, however, will solely feature the music of favorite local band, Resisting Tradition, along with other activities and plenty of social time.
Music is slated to begin at 6:30 p.m. each Friday in the senior center room at the Armfield Civic and Recreation Center, and will continue until 8:30 p.m. A nominal cost of $2 will be requested at the door with a portion of the proceeds to be used to cover the bands traveling expenses.
When the jam session was canceled, explained PMSC Senior Project Specialist Shirley Key, our seniors really missed the music and the opportunity for an evening out. They enjoyed that time to mingle and have a good time. Were doing this for our seniors but anybody is welcome to come out and enjoy the music.
According to Key, the evening is the first step in what should be a busy year for the center.
Were looking at expanding our schedule by adding other senior activities in the near future, she said. Im here for our seniors. I want us to meet their needs and be doing the things that they want to do.
