What is MDSC?
View the video followed by an English transcript by MDSC President Janet Weinstock explaining what MDSC is all about.
Hi. I am Janet Weinstock and I am President of Maryland Deaf Senior Citizens, Inc. I was elected last June 2023 and I will serve until June 2025, a 2 year term. What is MDSC? I want to briefly explain what MDSC is all about. For more information about MDSC, check our website and our Facebook page. MDSC is a non-stock and nonprofit organization founded in 1976 by 41 Deaf Seniors and a Coda! MDSC is still running and will continue to do so. MDSC welcomes individuals who are 50 years old or older. If you are a year or two younger, that’s okay. You are still welcome! The annual membership begins on August 1 and ends on July 31 of the following year. With 4 letters that represent M D S C – Motivation – Dedication – Support – Commitment, the elected officers and appointed board members plan, develop, and coordinate programs and activities with a variety of presentations, games and most importantly FOOD and many more, all for fun! We gather every 3rd Thursday of the month from September to December and from February to June – 9 times a year – at the Senior Center in Silver Spring, MD. Two other times we gather at a regional park to enjoy the BBQ lunch and our ever popular Holiday Luncheon at another place. MDSC offers day trips a couple of times a year – 9/11 Museum in NYC, Monticello, Harriet Tubman Museum & Educational Center, and most recently, Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Of course, we had a great time! We welcome visitors and volunteers from area community colleges that offer ASL and Deaf Studies to join us as well. They had a fabulous time and we know that! FYI, we are a cool bunch!
