Summer Activities for Seniors in Morris County

One of the things that sets Lester Senior Living apart from other senior communities, is the number and scope of organized activities we offer. At Lester Senior Living in Morris County, we believe that summer is a season for joy, exploration, new experiences and just chillin’ with friends. In this article, our team of senior activity coordinators will highlight a variety of activities and events available on our campus and in the local Morris County area. From outdoor adventures to indoor retreats, to our senior happy hours, there’s something for every senior and their families to enjoy.

Stroll through Morris County Parks

One awesome perk is the Senior Citizen Pass offered by the Morris County Park Commission. This pass is available to older adults aged 62 and older and provides free entry and parking to all county parks. With this pass, seniors can enjoy the beautiful Sunrise Lake Beach Club in Mendham Township. This local gem offers a perfect spot to relax by the water without the need to travel far. Whether it’s a leisurely swim, a family picnic, or simply soaking up the sun, Sunrise Lake Beach Club is a great destination for a hot summer day! Just don’t forget to lather on SPF 50 and refill your water bottle throughout the day.

Take a “Sun Break” and Relax at the Morris County Library

For those who prefer a break from the summer heat, the Morris County Library is a treasure trove of engaging activities. The library’s summer schedule is packed with exciting events, including Jigsaw Puzzle Tournaments, Friday Afternoon Movies, Writer’s Circle Discussions, and Chess Club gatherings. These activities not only provide entertainment but also offer opportunities for socializing and mental stimulation, ensuring that local seniors remain active and engaged throughout the season.

Summer Celebrations at Lester Senior Living

Back at Lester Senior Living, we are eagerly anticipating our annual “Red, White & Blue Celebration” on July 4th. This patriotic event is a highlight of our summer calendar, featuring live entertainment, delicious food, and all of our residents wearing red, white and blue. Last year’s celebration was a great success, with a memorable performance by Harry Maitland. This year promises to be just as spectacular, so keep an eye on our community calendar for updates on the entertainment lineup and other exciting details.

In addition to our special events, we will continue our popular Friday Happy Hours with Rudy. Every Friday, our residents can stop by for a drink and “nosh” at our concession stand. These happy hours are a wonderful way for residents to unwind, socialize, and enjoy the company of friends and staff members in a casual, welcoming setting.
