Annual Senior Outing in Belize

Posted by Kacie Emmerson

April 25, 2023

Earlier this month, LIFE’s seniors gathered for their yearly trip. They hopped on a bus generously donated by the Belize City Council and took a scenic drive to the Blue Economy and Civil Aviation Seashore Park.

The purpose of the annual outing is to get the seniors out of their usual surroundings, to enjoy a different part of Belize and hang out with each other. The Seniors had the opportunity to enjoy being by the Caribbean Sea. They played games, won prizes, sang songs and enjoyed a nice lunch of chicken burger. Since the trip was held close to Good Friday, each senior received a cross bun and an Easter basket to take home with them. LIFE also celebrated birthdays for the month of April. Each senior with an April birthday received a card and a cake and happy birthday was sung. All shared how they enjoyed the outing.
