Poetry, Greek celebration planned at Senior Center

By
March 31, 2011 |

Greek culture and poetry will be celebrated in the next few weeks at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

Join Davis’ Poet Laureate Allegra Silberstein for interactive poetry from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on the first Thursday of each month. Participants are invited to bring their own poems and/or their favorite poems to share. The event is free and open to everyone age 18 and older.

On Tuesday, learn about the Greek islands in a free presentation for all ages from 1 to 2 p.m. Every summer since 2002, Aliki Dragona has been teaching the UC Davis Summer Sessions Abroad program, “Travelers in Greece.” In Tuesday’s presentation, Dragona will show slides of her travels and share information on the history and culture of Greece.

For more Greek food and fun, come to the Senior Center’s popular International Day on Tuesday, April 12, with the theme “OPA! Greek Food & Fun!” The event, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature a Greek food lunch, catered by the Californian Assisted Living, a performance by Greek dancers and a raffle featuring items and gift cards from area businesses. Tickets will be sold at the Davis Senior Center until Friday, April 8. Tickets are $8 for Senior Citizens of Davis members and $10 for nonmembers. All ages are welcome.

The Davis Senior Center is part of the city of Davis Community Services Department. For more information, call the Senior Center at (530) 757-5696 or visit www.cityofdavis.org/cs/seniors.
