Remembering our dear friend, Pharmacist Mario Casinelli:

The twinkle in his eye, his warm smile, his empathy.

His mentoring, his leadership, his patience, his humbleness.

A role model, always caring. An energizer bunny.

You leave us with many memories!

While our center continues to be closed for programs and activities, we ask all of you to continue to stay active both physically and mentally. There are a number of programs and activities you can find online.

The Age Friendly RI Virtual Community Center is one of these places where you can connect, learn, and play online when in-person experiences are not possible. Take part in a wide array of online activities … fitness and wellness, cooking, tech help, entertainment, games, and so much more. Visit Age Friendly RI at agefriendlyri.org to find a full schedule of free, engaging activities every day. Enjoy!

Arthritis Exercise Class with Jennifer … from the comfort of your home. Now available on the Cranston Senior Enrichment Center’s Facebook page and on YouTube. Keep moving!
