Dunkirk Adult Day Care Center celebrated Christmas on Dec. 15. The participants had a surprise visit from Santa Claus himself. Happy Grams, which is Chautauqua Adult Day Services very own choir from the Taft Center in Jamestown, performed Christmas music. Everyone sang along and also enjoyed snowman cupcakes, which were delicious.

CADS offers senior day programs for adults 60 years of age and older who live in the community. The day programs enable seniors to have quality of life through socialization and activity programming. The sites provide breakfast, snack and a hot noon time meal for participants.

In addition, the agency also has a “Saturday Program” in Jamestown which helps participants stay involved in community events and outdoor recreation.
