UH Senior Happenings
Senior Happenings, sponsored by the city of University Heights, are open to all senior citizens. Events take place on Thursdays at 2 p.m. at the University Heights Library. To receive the monthly schedule by e-mail, call 216-932-7800, ext. 205, or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Feb. 7: Felicia Adams, administrator of the Senior Companion Program at Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, will discuss the work of the program. It provides trained volunteers, who have a passion for helping others, to give one-on-one personalized attention to a senior citizen who may be socially isolated, perhaps because family bonds have been stretched or frayed.
Feb. 14: David Lucas, professor of English at Case Western Reserve University, is the poet laureate for the state of Ohio. He'll describe his mission to promote literacy and learning, and encourage an appreciation of poetry with his column, “Poetry for People Who Hate Poetry."
Feb. 21: Harold Spicknall, conductor for “Hum and Strum,” will host a sing-along to ukulele, guitar and mandolin music by the Cleveland Heights Senior Center Band.
Feb. 28: Rachel Kribbs, director of community partnerships at the Cleveland Institute of Music, will be accompanied by some of the school's gifted instrumentalists and vocalists.
