Sequoia Living Connections Newsletter: Fall-Winter 2018
In the heart of the Tenderloin, a caring, creative community is blossoming. Every other Wednesday, older adults gather at the San Francisco Senior Center's Downtown Center for “Blooms in Your Room,” a flower arranging workshop led by community outreach coordinator Ilene “Sweetie” Shapiro. Over smiles and conversation, seniors create vibrant bouquets of sunflowers, tulips, gladiolas, carnations,
roses, and other flowers donated by Trader Joe’s. By the end of each session, each participant has a beautiful handmade arrangement to take home in a vase provided by the Center. Every two weeks, participants are invited to bring their vases back to the Center to refill them with fresh blooms.
