Why not honor your loved ones with a donation to the Senior Connections fund and help us to continue these great programs twice a month? Senior Connections is a self-sustaining group within the Temple family. Our success is due to the support of people like you. Contributions of any amount to Senior Connections are greatly appreciated and will go toward honorariums for our speakers, film licensing dues, luncheon expenses and assistance to seniors in our Temple and in the larger community.
