So, grab your hat.  Gather your friends and join us at the 2018 Holiday Hat Bash at CASI - The Center for Active Seniors, located at 1035 West Kimberly Road, Davenport, Iowa. 
So what’s the story behind the event? In 2008, Lenora sent a letter thanking someone named “Kate” from CASI, the Center for Active Seniors in Davenport. Kate had given a gift and a card to Lenora.  At 89 years old, she didn’t receive too many visitors, let alone Christmas gifts. In fact, it was the ONLY Christmas gift she had received.
Just think, a small act of kindness by Kate, recognized by Lenora, was the impetus for CASI’s Holiday Hat Bash, the Party with a Purpose.  And with such strong support from our presenting sponsor, Ruhl and Ruhl Realtors, CASI has raised funds to purchase holiday gifts for Quad City area seniors and make their holiday season just a bit brighter.

CASI - The Center for Active Seniors Facts:
  • CASI - The Center For Active Seniors, Inc., established in 1973, serves the needs of older adults by providing a variety of events and daily activities keeping older Quad Citians socially, mentally and physically engaged. As 10,000 baby boomers turn age 65 every day, “senior citizen” is being redefined as is the senior lifestyle. CASI’s multi -pronged approach to helping seniors age successfully includes health and wellness initiatives, social engagement opportunities, lifelong learning and volunteer opportunities to keep the older adult active and involved with our Quad Cities community.  
  • Senior Advocacy programs at CASI help older adults, their families, and caregivers with needs assessment helping partner them with other area agencies and programs keeping them in their own home for as long as is safely possible.
  • CASI’s Jane’s Place, the only adult day center in Eastern Iowa, provides a comfortable, homelike atmosphere for adults who need supervised care during the day due to stroke recovery, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Jane’s Place provides just the right amount of personal care allowing maximum independence while at Jane’s Place Adult Day Service Center. Open Monday through Friday from 7am to 4:30pm, Jane’s Place is located on the south-side of CASI.
