KENNETT SQUARE — To celebrate its recovery, a multi-generational event will be held on Saturday, May 21, at the Kenneth Center for the Elderly. KASC officially opened on April 11, and their May 21 event invites the entire community to come and see its beautiful, recently renovated space, enjoying great entertainment and great food.
The Open Day celebrations include Wayne Carr’s piano concerto, a revival of rock and roll from The Act Players, a visit to dog therapist Ingrid and balloon skills for children of all ages performed by TBL’s Balloons. Mezzaluna’s wood-fired pizza, Michoacana utensils and sweet cakes complete the food offerings for purchase. Guests will also have the opportunity to hear interesting news from the program.
“We were making lemonade from lemons at the time Covid closed our doors,” said Stephanie D’Amico, CEO of KASC. “Thanks to the generous funding provided by the Center to former KASC board members as well as the Longwood Foundation, we have been able to improve and renovate our program spaces and kitchen.”
The event lasts from 10.00 to 15.00. Parking for overcrowding is available across the road in the Red Clay Hall on Dalmatian Street.
“Our goal is to open the door wide on May 21 and let the public know that we are here and ready to serve them,” Ms. D’Amico said.
