Hal Turner's wife, Jeanne, surprised him with a 90th birthday party at the senior center last winter, complete with Seahawks-themed cupcakes. She told him she was bringing him in for our Friday morning coffee social hour, but little did Hal know that she had called all his friends and they were there waiting to celebrate his birthday!
Hal served on our board of directors for over 10 years, both as a board member and as chairperson, and spearheaded the project to expand our parking lot.
Hal retired in Wenatchee back in 2008 to be closer to his kids and enjoys playing golf.

The Wenatchee Valley Senior Activity Center hosts an annual Gift & Craft Fair the second Saturday of November. Due to the pandemic, 2022 was the first time we were able to hold this event in three years.
The fair fills the social hall at the senior center and most of the common areas at the adjacent Foothills Middle School, featuring over 100 booths from local and regional vendors. The fair also marks the launch of our Christmas Cottage in our Second Chance Thrift Shop, containing thousands of new and gently used holiday decorations at thrift store prices. This is our largest fundraising event of the year. All proceeds support operations of the senior center.
Vibrant Motion is an hour-long exercise program featuring low-impact aerobics, with special episodes featuring dance lessons, tai chi and other senior-friendly exercises.
Previous segments of the shows can be viewed online on the Wenatchee Valley Senior Activity Center's YouTube channel. The NCWLIFE Channel also shows reruns of the programs in between seasons.
