The Annual Senior Movie Day and Luncheon returns – Wednesday, May 30

Thanks again to Atlas Cinemas Eastgate for their generosity, CPA is able to bring the annual movie day to you!  This year’s movie is 1963’s “Charade” starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.  The matinee will start at 2:00 PM.

The movie is preceded by the annual luncheon at Ross C. DeJohn Community Center – courtesy of CPA’s Chef Warren, staff and volunteers.

Senior Day is an annual celebration in honor of Older Americans Month.  Since 1963, Older Americans Month has been a time to celebrate older Americans, their stories, and their contributions. Led by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), the annual observance offers a special opportunity to learn about, support, and recognize our nation’s older citizens.

Produce Plus

 The Produce Plus is in full swing!  Each month eligible older adult residents of our five CPA communities can shop for select produce items (and sometimes more) courtesy of a program through the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.  No reservations are necessary; however participants must meet eligibility (income and age) guidelines.  Click here to read the flyer with details.


Calling Retired Contractors or Tradespeople!

 Additional help is needed to provide volunteer consultations for our Safe at Home projects.  This program allows individuals who qualify financially to receive installation of grab bars, railings, and other accessibility equipment.  These installations are completed by a trained professional, but we use skilled volunteers to complete measurements and provide other valuable information before the materials are ordered by CPA.  This typically occurs about two to three times a month.  Sound interesting?  Please call Corinne Dunn, CPA Volunteer Coordinator, at 216-291-3902, ext. 213.
