The NoMi Golden Silver Seniors Program commemorated its fourth year of service with a luncheon celebrating local seniors and volunteers in the City of North Miami on Wednesday, Feb. 27. The City of North Miami’s Social Services Division hosted the 4th Annual Luncheon for the seniors’ program at the Joe Celestin Center, located at 1525 NW 135th Street. Guests enjoyed music, dancing and performances by Linda “Porsha” Estime. Program volunteers were also honored for their commitment and willingness to serve and assist the seniors and staff.  

Through the program, North Miami seniors, ages 55 and older enjoy weekly field trips, free exercise classes, informational presentations, social gatherings, crafts and additional activities. From the inception of the seniors’ program on September 30, 2015, the program expanded from about 30 seniors serviced once a week to over 140 seniors serviced every Wednesday and Friday. Program participants have enjoyed trips to Holy Land in Orlando, Florida, the NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, at Cape Canaveral and Parrot Jungle in Miami, Florida. 

Vice Mayor Philippe Bien-Aime, who provided remarks at the luncheon, said “Our senior program is expanding rapidly and it is my hope and vision to create a senior center that our aging community can enjoy.”   

Councilman Alix Desulme who founded the program in 2015 said, “I never imagined the program taking off like wildfire; but I’m glad it did.  The NoMi Golden Silver Seniors Program continues to exceed its mission of enhancing the quality of life for our North Miami senior citizens while promoting healthy aging.”   

Councilwoman Carol Keys, Esq. who attended the celebration stated “It gives me so much joy seeing our seniors happy and enjoying themselves each week. They really appreciate our NoMi Golden Silver Seniors Program and I’m happy to support such a fabulous program.”
