The City of Mesquite is hosting a craft and bake sale to benefit its program for older residents at Goodbar Senior Center.
The sale will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, at the Goodbar Senior Center, 3000 Concord Dr.
Some of the booths will include knitted hats and scarves, jewelry, picture art, canned goods, hand-sewn hot pads and bowl huggers, dish towel dresses, cord bracelets and ceramics. There will also be a variety of baked goods available for purchase.
All items in the sale are handmade by participants of Goodbar’s Adults 50+ Program, which provides activities, meals, assistance programs and fitness opportunities for residents over age 50.
“Our senior citizens are a treasure, and we are thrilled to offer programs and activities to help them stay fit and engaged,” said Pam Folsom, Recreation Supervisor for Adults 50+ Programs. “This craft and bake sale will help us to do even more here at Goodbar for residents.”
About 350 people participate in the Adults 50+ Program at Goodbar, with 1,200 total participants across the City. Through the program, members get free access to the fitness rooms and basketball courts at the City’s senior centers, free lunches through the Congregate Meal program for those over age 60, free enrollment in exercise and enrichment programs (including social events and trips) and free rides for eligible residents on STAR Transit.
