Two events are taking place this weekend at the Senior Center. The first, the Art Association’s Spring Gala, is open to the entire community. The second, a free spaghetti dinner provided by the Family Matters Club, is especially for seniors.

CLAA Spring Gala

Canyon Lakers and their guests are invited to the Canyon Lake Art Association’s Spring Gala at the Senior Center on April 25, from 4 to 7 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Organizers say artwork currently on display in the Senior Center is based upon an “Abstract Expressionism” theme, a method in which the artist takes an intriguing idea, or image, and transforms it into an emotional, expressionistic response.

Some of the artists’ whose work currently is on display are LorA2-PIC-3-Barbara-Perryman-arti Gundrum, Carol Davis, Barbara Perryman, Rhonda Strickland, Marilyn Latimer. Janie Currey, Reza Sephadari, Lana Jenkins and Franco. Other artists may bring in additional pieces the evening of the gala.

Spaghetti for Seniors

Can’t make it on Saturday? Seniors will have a second chance to enjoy the artwork on Sunday, April 26, when the Canyon Lake Family Matters Club will be hosting a free spaghetti dinner for all seniors at the Senior Center. (This doesn’t mean high school seniors.)

Dinner time will be at 5 p.m. in place of the usual potluck. The group will be serving spaghetti and meatballs, green salad with choice of dressing, bread, juice/lemonade and dessert.

“We hope to introduce ourselves and our club to all of you, so please come out and meet us for a free dinner,” says club founder Shawna Bowen.
