The Durham Center for Senior Life will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Rigsbee Avenue Senior Center on Friday, June 17.
The center will host an evening of dining and dancing, featuring Johnny White and the Elite Band, with treats from local restaurants.
At 5 p.m., the Museum of Durham History and DCSL invite the public to attend a “History Grove” dedication ceremony on the plaza in front of the Center for Senior Life honoring the late Becky Melton Heron. The late Durham County commissioner (1982-2011) was a vigorous supporter in the planning and construction of the Senior Center.
The Museum of Durham History partners with local organizations to establish small groves of native trees and plants to honor individuals, families and others who played significant roles in creating our unique community. Each grove contains seating where visitors can pause and reflect, and every site has a durable marker naming the honoree.
The Museum of Durham History’s home, the History Hub, is located at 500 W. Main St. and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. There is no admission charge. For more information, see www.modh.org.
The Durham Center for Senior Life has four senior centers, including the downtown Durham Center for Senior Life.
