Please look for the new fall program of activities as an insert in the next issue of The Charlotte News. Until then, we close out our summer days with these additional offerings to the regular weekly schedule.

Our 10th Annual Charlotte Senior Center Community Art Show will hang in the great room for the month of September and is open to all “creative spirits,” 50 years or older, in our community. Registration forms with specific details are on the table in the front foyer with an August 21 deadline for submission. As always, a reception will be held for the artists, friends and relatives on Wednesday, Sept. 2, at 1 p.m.

Join Hank Kaestner on Wednesday morning, Aug. 19, for another Birding Expedition as we try to record 100 species of birds in one year! Meet at the center a little before 9 a.m. so we can carpool together to the location Hank has scouted for spectacular bird watching. Please register for this event so if we have to change the date due to bird migration or weather, we can call you. No fee.

We hope you can join us to celebrate the lazy, hazy days of summer at our Annual BBQ on Friday, Aug. 21, beginning at 5 p.m. Bring your family and friends for a great time. Rain or shine, the party will begin with appetizers at 5 p.m. and dinner “hot off the grill” at 6. Registration required. Fee: $12 per person.
