Westfield Senior Day Program participants are combatting the winter blues by being creative.
On Friday, Jan. 18, they made necklaces out of hardware store washers, decorated with fingernail polish and hung on ribbon with beads.
Chautauqua Adult Day Care Centers, Inc., a nonprofit United Way agency, offers senior day programs for adults 60 years of age and older who live in the community.

The agency has four sites that serve all of Chautauqua County. The programs provide socialization and offer opportunities for older adults to participate in during the day.
The sites provide breakfast, snack and a noon-time meal for participants.
There is also a community recreation program that helps people participate in outings in the community, and the sites offer pet therapy, ceramics, music programs, and arts and crafts on an ongoing basis.
