News & Events
Ming Chin celebrated his 100th birthday with his friends at the Riverdale Senior Services a couple weeks ago. But the man who refused to retire almost had that life cut short 17 years ago.
Chin was 83 when two airliners crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and was just about to step into one of the tower buildings for work when he saw the first plane.
“Class Is In Session. Please Knock,” was the message on the back of a gray door at Riverdale Senior Services. Inside, scripts of plays were
sprawled across a table. The theatrical voices of six older women ebbed and flowed across the room. The women make up the local Arts Studio Drama Club that meets weeklyto do read-throughs of favorite plays.
On September 24th through 28th, RSS will be a host site for Active Aging Week. Besides the regular roster of RSS classes, trips and group activities, each day will focus on a theme related to wellness. This is all part of the 16th consecutive Active Aging Week®, an annual event in the last week of September in which hundreds of thousands of adults aged 50 and older participate in a multitude of activities in an atmosphere of fun, friendship, adventure, and positive perceptions of aging.
