CH Senior Center News

May is Older Americans Month. Each year, the Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center (SAC) celebrates this designation with a forum held on the last Thursday in May. This year’s forum, Cleveland Heights: a Welcoming City, will focus on how immigration enriches all of our lives, and explore the ethnicity of those who make Cleveland Heights their home.

The Cleveland Heights Commission on Aging—an advisory group made up of senior residents whose mission is to advise CH City Council on matters of importance to seniors—organizes the forum each year. Past topics have included Arts in the Heights, Women Who Lead and Inspire, and Housing Matters.

The program will take place this year on Thursday, May 25, 1–3 p.m., and will begin with a reading by Christine Howey, the Cleveland Heights poet laureate, and conclude with light refreshments. Speakers will include individuals who work with local organizations and immigrant groups. The program is free, and no reservation is required.

The Cleveland Heights SAC, located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a wide variety of programming for Cleveland Heights residents 60 and older, and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A complete schedule of programs is published in the community center’s newsletter, which is available at Cleveland Heights City Hall, local libraries, the community center and online at
