Johnston Senior Center holds Christmas raffle and tree lighting


The JSC is planning some fun Christmas observances this year. With the happenings of last year, the center being closed and events being put on hold because of the pandemic, many of our community and Center members spent the season at home or even alone.

This year we are so happy to not only be open since June, inviting our members to celebrate our reopening in July, and now we are excited to have our traditional Christmas Tree Lighting along with a new fun event.

 On Dec. 1, we will be lighting the Christmas Tree as we serve hot cocoa, apple cider and holiday cookies right after our noontime meal. You will also enjoy a Sing-Along with Shirley Martin as she plays a variety of Christmas music for your appreciation. To join us for lunch on that day and be here for the fun, all you need to do is call Brenda at 401-944-3343 to reserve your meal!

Something different this year will be the new “Twelve Raffle Days of Christmas” where there will be a drawing each weekday for 12 days from Thursday, Dec. 2 until Friday Dec. 17.

The tickets are $12.00 and are on sale now at the JSC front desk.  You will have an opportunity to win a fantastic gift from a variety of prizes. We don’t want you to miss the FUN, so come in to get your ticket today and call to let us know that you are coming to the Tree Lighting! We hope to see many of you spend some time with us and enjoy time with friends as we celebrate together!

Editor’s Note: Denise Bell is the Assistant Director at the Johnston Senior Center.
