Preserve Our History, be a steward of our institutional history and traditions!

Alumni serve as a repository of institutional history and traditions, preserving the heritage of Senior Friendship Centers. Alumni offer insights into the evolution of Senior Friendship Centers and provide valuable perspectives, engagement, and feedback.
