GEORGETOWN – The arrival of warm weather and sunny skies means more than days to the beach are ahead.

It’s time to get out of the house and do something productive.

The Sussex County Advisory Committee on Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities for its May meeting is offering an invitation to learn about opportunities for seniors and those with disabilities to get out, find outlets for their energy, and make new friends. ‘

Anthony DelFranco, director of marketing for CHEER/Sussex County Senior Services, will present information on all the CHEER centers in Sussex County, and the various activities offered year-round.

In addition, Ann Gorrin of the Delaware Office of Volunteerism will discuss Delaware Volunteer 50+, a program for persons 50 and older who want to volunteer.

The meeting will be held Monday, May 18 at 10 a.m. at the new CHEER Center located at 24855 Broadkill Road, Milton.

A tour of the facility will be offered to those attending the meeting.
