Center a gem for seniors

-A A +A

To the editor:
I would like to take this moment to express my appreciation for the Senior Center at Southport. It is located behind Wingate Hotel in Smithville Crossing Center.
A truly hidden gem, it offers the senior community of Southport, Boiling Spring Lakes, Oak Island and St. James many opportunities for fellowship, games, studies, crafts and exercise, both tacit and active, with the new fitness room. This center also offers one hot meal a day during the week and has a gift shop.
My wife and I found this center as we wandered around Southport and the surrounding area right after we had moved here. We have become quite active and invite the senior community to come and visit, if you have not already been here, to see the activities that await.
For the many seniors out there looking for a pleasant place to go daily, there are other senior sites around Brunswick County, including those in Ash, Boiling Spring Lakes, Calabash, Leland, Oak Island, Shallotte, Sunset Harbor, and Supply. I urge all the seniors reading this to try one out.
