Today the 55-plus age category is the fastest-growing group in the country. This makes The Salvation Army programs for older adults more important than ever. Each year thousands of older adults are served by The Salvation Army. In corps community centers throughout the nation, older adults gather to share interests, develop new skills and enjoy the company of their peers. The Salvation Army meets their needs in many ways.

In the Lake County Corps in Leesburg, the Forever Fifty Seniors group (55 & older) meet every Tuesday after the luncheon. Lunch starts between 11:30 a.m. & 12 p.m. and all are invited. Afterward, the Seniors (called Forever Fifty group) stay for fun & games. Some of the activities have included trivia, crafts of all kinds, Bingo (at least once a month), guest speakers, making ice cream, games, and all kinds of fun. If you are 55 & older, and you want to have fun with people of your age group, you are invited to come for the fun & the fellowship. For more information, contact the local Salvation Army at (352) 365-0079. Program director is Sergeant Major Don Hickey.
 St Paddy's Day  Making Ice Cream
The Forever Fifty group have a yearly St. Paddy's Day party. All the seniors wear their favorite green! Forever Fifty had an "ice cream making" day. Then they decorated it with their favorite toppings.
 Senior Donated Quilt  Older Adult Camp
A handmade quilt made by the senior ladies of the Forever Fifty group that was donated to "The Haven," a local emergency shelter for mothers and children rescued from abusive domestic situations. Once a year the seniors can go to an "Older Adult Camp" at Camp Keystone, a Salvation Army owned campground. There are many programs to choose from while you are there including swimming, choir, crafts, mini golf, & horseback riding.
