Keep Irving Beautiful Visits Heritage Senior Center for Art Project



(IRVING, TEXAS)— On May 22, Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) staff visited the Heritage Senior Center (HSC), 200 S. Jefferson St., for a birdhouse painting project with the seniors. The seniors gathered in the crafts room and spent the morning flexing their artistic talents and creativity.


HSC Recreation Specialist T.J. Friedel organizes different craft projects for the seniors to sign up for each month.  “We appreciate KIB for coming out today and bringing the birdhouses,” said Friedel.  “This is the first of many art projects we hope to do with them.  Having the birdhouses to paint was a nice change, and the participants really enjoyed it.”


“KIB has had an ongoing relationship with the HSC for many years,” said KIB Board member Rachel Moon. “We enjoy visiting the center on a regular basis to promote KIB activities and programs or participate in special events.  It’s an important part of our outreach that extends to all ages here in Irving.”
