NextFifty Initiative has awarded the Paradise Theatre $25,000 to implement the Engage Seniors to Prevent Senior Isolation program. We were thrilled to work with Elsewhere, the Paonia Senior Center and North Fork Senior Connections that brought FREE weekly activities to our senior population.

Beginning in April 2020, seniors participated in weekly activities (classic movies, art classes, exercise/movement classes, and game days) that culminated with a healthy lunch at the Paonia Senior Center. Transportation was arranged through All Points Transit or North Fork Senior Connections.
