Research has shown that irrespective of your age, meeting other seniors in your community and participating in different activities is vital for your physical, mental and emotional health.
Keeping the above factor in mind HTCC has started a once a month “Seniors Social” at the temple, which will mostly be on the 4th Saturday of each month from 3 to 5 PM. It offers a platform to meet other seniors in your neighborhood, share your experiences and knowledge. We offer presentations on valuable topics and physical activities that will enhance your day to day living. In summer, there will be organized field trips.

Cleaning Healthy, Cleaning Green - People spend 90 percent of their time indoors. Studies by the EPA show levels of pollutants to be 2 to 5 times higher inside homes than outside. Many of these pollutants come from household cleaning products. Indoor pollutants can be reduced by limiting the number of chemicals used indoors. With these guidelines you can improve your indoor environment, save money and help conserve natural resources
