Bayside Older Adult Center Celebrates the Year of the Rabbit

Happy Lunar New Year from the Catholic Charities Bayside Older Adult Center!
Our members welcomed the Lunar New Year with a fun-filled festival, laughter and great company. The Lunar New Year is celebrated primarily by Chinese, East Asian and Vietnamese communities and kicks off 15 days of festivities. According to Chinese culture, the rabbit is a symbol for peace and speaks to the power of empathy. Our older adults had a great time celebrating their culture and learning about the richness of other traditions. 
The Catholic Charities Adult Centers offer a range of activities and services, including lunch, social services, educational workshops, exercise classes, discussion groups, games, art classes, lectures, workshops, health screenings, organized outings, special events, and parties. Volunteer opportunities are available to participants and community members, and transportation is provided to eligible participants (at select centers).
