Island Party, auction help keep senior center running

It’s all about fun, fitness and friendship at a line-dancing class, one of the many activities offered at the North Brevard Senior Center.


Activities are the focus at Titusville’s North Brevard Senior Center, according to operations manager Debra Easterling.

“People come to enjoy games, dancing and crafts,” she said. “But we still need to pay for maintenance and utilities.”

Proceeds from an Island Party and silent auction will keep the lights on and the air-conditioner humming.

The party, auction and 50/50 drawing will take place 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23 at the Senior Center at 909 Lane Ave. Admission is $5 and all are invited.

“Everything from hand-painted gourds, breathing machines, cat food, gun bags, watches, handmade quilts, purses and small rugs will be auctioned,” Easterling said.

Tim Reynolds will set a festive island mood on his steel drum.

Other exciting options are many games, including bingo, and dancing.

“Players have a lot of fun, joking and chatting. They love the chance to win,” Easterling said of the bingo sessions that start at 10 a.m. each Thursday.

A line dancing class is taught by Yvette Kling.

“It’s a great way to meet people and make friends in a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere,” she said. “Life can be difficult, but dancing can take us away from our worries as we focus on learning the steps and dancing.”

Classes are $3 for members,

$4 for guests.
