Council on Aging and Banner Lake Community Center forge partnership, bring comprehensive senior programming to Hobe Sound

Just prior to COVID-19 turning the world upside down, the Council on Aging at the Kane Center and the Banner Lake Community Center began strategizing a partnership that would bring senior programming directly to the Hobe Sound community. The Council on Aging has been operating one of its senior dining centers at the Banner Lake Club for several years, but the opening of the beautiful new Community Center presented a fresh opportunity to enrich the lives of seniors.

In order to launch these ideas off the ground, the organizations needed a dynamic person to get the program up and running. Enter Chenelle Weaver, the new Community Coordinator for the Council on Aging at the Banner Lake Community Center. Weaver is a longtime resident of Banner Lake and a Hobe Sound native. In her new role, she supports the planning and coordination of programs and activities geared towards seniors who live in the Banner Lake community and throughout Hobe Sound, such as fitness classes, educational lectures, brain fitness and more. In addition, she helps identify the needs of seniors by personally checking in with them on a regular basis.

“I have always found it rewarding to work in occupations of service,” said Weaver. “I am so honored and blessed beyond simple words to be a part of the Banner Lake community as both an employee and a resident.”

Weaver is a Registered Behavior Technician. She has served previously as an ESE paraprofessional and a member of the Behavior Support Team with the Martin County School District and as a Mental Health Tech Supervisor at Sandy Pines Hospital.

The new senior programs, including the senior dining center, are made possible by funding from the Hobe Sound Community Chest.

Currently, the senior dining center is offering free grab-and-go meals only and any plans for new group activities at the Banner Lake Community Center are on hold until the threat of COVID-19 dissipates. For information on receiving free meals, call 772-223-7826.
