Stories from those who come to Hill Country Senior Center…
This has been such a joy to be able to meet with friends at the senior center. I can bring sewing, crafts, or paperwork here while having a pleasant atmosphere. Many of us dine with old friends while making new friends…we exchange many stories. The Hill Country Senior Center has become the high point in many of our lives. Many classes are offered…sewing, crafts, painting, dance and various types of exercise. Karyn has been busy seeing that we have plenty to do…if we wish. I thank those who support the Senior Center…it is such a blessing for many of us. Thank God for this place.
Please come check out the Senior Center! It isn’t just “older” folks sitting around…although you can do that if you want. The folks here are all so friendly, love to laugh, try new things, be yourself and just have fun! I have met so many nice people and I truly appreciate all the wonderful activities, and classes (all free) that the center offers. The director is amazing and so helpful with whatever you need. So enjoyable…please check it out!
I really enjoy coming on Tuesday for lunch and line dancing. The food is good and I’ve met lots of people. The exercise is great and lots of laughs. There are lots of other activitieies. The first Wednesday of each month is Linda for hair cutting.
The Senior Center is conveniently located on west Hwy 290. There I find old and new friends with whom I enjoy spending time in execise classes, a delicious lunch…and as of recently, line dancing! It is a very welcoming place!
This has become a place where we feel free to enjoy ourselves with others. There has been so much to enjoy, art, exercise, line dancing and numerous other crafts. Thank you Karyn for all the extra energy you put into these projects for all of us.
I would like to express my thoughts of the Line Dancing Program. I joined to get this kind of exercise and have fun. When I started, my legs hurt…but now, I’m able to get through the entire dance lesson just fine! It has also helped with my balance and thinking power!
I first want to thank all of the people it takes to run our Senior Center. They are truly devoted to making our days happy and full. I moved here a year ago. I knew no-one. But since making the Senior Center my “Go To” place, my list of friends is endless! We laugh together, exersize together, take Painting Classes and Line Dance classes together…we also eat the fabulous food together…This Center is alive with activities. It has made my life so much more enriched!
The people who run the Senior Center have so much warmth and enthusiasm and that has become contagious. Seniors, to my mind, seem to have a thirst for learning new things. Because of all of the programs that have been developed here at the Senior Center, that desire is being fulfilled. How fortunate we are to have this Senior Center. The creativity and energy is very much appreciated.
What the Senior Center means to me: I have established new friends and enjoy meeting up with old friends. I enjoy well balanced meals at a reasonable price. I really like learning different Art techniques from the different classes being offered. I have really loved the Line Dancing…which is good exercise (which I need). I like to play different games like ‘42’ dominos and Bingo. I am able to do all these things at the Senior Center. The Senior Center is keeping me active in my ‘senior’ years!
When I moved at age 83 to Dripping Springs on January 4th this year (2017) I didn't know anyone, except my daughter…with whom I had come to live. I knew that I needed to find something to occupy my time. I sought out the local Senior Center. Well…I found it and started going to exercise classes. I had been isolated for quite a few years and needed activity. Everyone was so friendly and encouraging. I signed up for Art Classes and had a blast using mediums that I formerly had never used…even though I had painted with oils some fifteen years ago. Happily I went to watercolor classes and found that this would be a wonderful new beginning...I felt liberated!!! I am challenged to study to be better at painting. I liked finding wonderful lunches provided for a low price and many other activities to occupy my time. Most of all I have found some delightful people whose company I have enjoyed. Their joy and enthusiasm is contagious! For everything I am truly grateful.
I get to come see my friends every day for lunch and I have a good time line dancing on Tuesdays.
Friends, fellowship and Line Dancing! I statrted coming to Line Dancing here last year, it is a lot of fun! We laugh and get great aerobic exercise.
When I heard about the activities at the senior center I thought…ahh I don’t know… However, it hit me that if I don’t go and check it out…I would never know. I invited a friend to try out the line dancing with me. We had a ball…so much fun that went back and will continue. We stopped by and had an awesome lunch, chicken and dumplings. My mom would be jealous.
Best of all, the people welcomed us with smiles and genuine care. We left with smiles on our faces and in our hearts. Thank you for the Senior Center!
