In the heart of the Sandler Family Campus, the Joe Fleischmann Lounge at the Simon Family Jewish Community Center becomes a hub of joy and celebration every first Friday of the month at 12:30 pm. This lively celebration is a special initiative of the JCC Seniors Club and is generously sponsored by The Talbot on Granby. The seniors’ birthday celebration is a cherished tradition that brings together the JCC active adults for an afternoon of cake, coffee, tea, camaraderie, laughter, and shared memories.

The JCC Seniors Club takes pride in organizing these monthly birthdays, ensuring each is unique and tailored to make everyone feel special and celebrated. Mia Klein works to create an inclusive environment where everyone, from 55 to 105, can come together and celebrate life.

A crucial partner in this endeavor is The Talbot on Granby, a five-star senior living community committed to promoting a vibrant and fulfilling lifestyle for its residents. Their sponsorship provides financial support and fosters a strong sense of community engagement. Lisa Byard, director of sales and marketing at The Talbot, participates in the celebrations, further enhancing the JCC’s partnerships and senior connections.

The Simon Family JCC and The Talbot on Granby have created a community involvement and collaboration model beyond traditional boundaries. Nestled in the bright and welcoming space of the Joe Fleischmann Lounge where JCC seniors gather, share stories, and enjoy each other’s company, they have created a positive impact on the well-being of the over-50 community in Hampton Roads.

The JCC Senior’s Birthday Celebrations serve as a reminder that age is but a number and the journey of life is best enjoyed with the company of friends and the warmth of shared celebrations.
