Lakeland seniors celebrate bonds at Feb. 14 luncheon

Rain couldn’t keep cupid away from the Lakeland Senior Center for the annual Valentine’s Day Luncheon celebrating love and friendship on Feb. 14.

Guests were showered with a catered feast from Tellini’s and entertainment provided by vocalist and keyboardist Charles Norman. Additional fun included Valentine’s Day bingo and TV couples trivia. Winners of bingo took home a box of chocolates. Three Trivia winners who knew their TV couples each took home a $10 Chili’s restaurant gift card.

“This holiday goes hand and hand with my motto regarding Lakeland Senior Center,” said Kim Odom, senior center manager. “I feel like the senior center plays Cupid all year by bonding friendships and couples. Senior centers are a gathering place for friends, and it’s easy to make friends here.”

The City of Lakeland welcomes all area seniors ages 55+ to the Lakeland Senior Center, located on the grounds of International Harvester Managerial Park, at 4527 Canada Road (next to the I.H. Clubhouse).
