The Lakeview Shepherd Center celebrated 38 years of senior wisdom, talent and creativity with a gala April 18 with a “Jump, Jive & Swing” theme.

Big band tunes from the Pfister Sisters created an atmosphere of romance, good food and fun.

The Lakeview Shepherd Center offers classes in painting, knitting, crocheting, quilting, tai chi, yoga, bridge and conversational French/Spanish, exercise and dancing, and the challenge of Wii games and cultural outings. Members receive computer assistance and laptop lending is ongoing. LSC also offers six to eight cultural outings per year, allowing seniors to socialize and learn new things.

The center’s next Golden Community Luncheon will be at noon May 15 at Community Church Unitarian Universalist, 6690 Fleur de Lis. For information, call the Lakeview Shepherd Center at (504) 484-0885.
