This past Wednesday I (Brooks) made my way down to Morehead City to check out the Leo Mann center and the event they had going on.
Rita’s Italian Ice Cream Truck was set up in the parking lot for 2 hours serving up ice cold ice cream and Italian ice. With all the proceeds going to Friends of Aging, which is a 501c3 program. It helps supplement homebound older adult programs.
While I was there I learned about the Enrichment Center. It is a center for elderly to go to for events, activities and just socializing. On top of the many programs they run out of there the building also holds a health room, game/billiard room, a library, areas for sitting outside and more…
They also host classes to learn how to speak Spanish, learn how to knit, line-dance and a whole lot more.
One of their biggest things now is providing food for those who are not able to go to the store and get it themselves.
All in all, this place is great for the community in many ways, more than just for the seniors. Stop on by today and see what they have to offer.
