“Anniversary of Retirement” Party for Peggy O’Callaghan
Former 60+ Activity Center director, Peggy O’Callaghan, retired on April 16, 2021, after 17 years of dedicated service as Supervisor of the Center. Due to COVID restrictions, we were not able to properly celebrate at that time. Therefore, the 60+ Activity Center is hosting an “Anniversary of Retirement” Party on April 15, 2022, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Thanks to Peggy, the 60+ Center has become an integral and valuable asset to the community. Through some of the grants she worked to obtain, the Center was able to purchase a 12-passenger van that has allowed us to take countless trips and hikes around Oregon, purchase an AED device, establish an iPad lending library, provide improvements to the facility and host Prevent Type 2 Diabetes, Fitbit, and Walk with Ease classes, to name a few. Under Peggy’s leadership, the center underwent a re-model in 2010 and now has a beautiful health and wellness studio, Education Center, and pool hall in the lower level.
In addition to the many exercise and social groups, Peggy’s creativity and boundless energy provided varied opportunities to reach out to the community, including annual Thanksgiving dinners, Veterans’ luncheons, Mad Hatter Tea Parties, Wii Bowling Tournaments and Senior Fitness Days.
Please join us for music, fun and refreshments as we thank Peggy for her hard work and all she accomplished to make the 60+ Activity Center the hub for seniors that it is.
