Looking Ahead To 2024 Classes & Events

Here at the Senior Center we are always looking to bring new, fun, and creative activities to our members! As we look to the winter and spring sessions of 2024, I wanted to share some new classes that will be taking place. We have a new Line Dance instructor, Vickie, who will be having classes on Wednesdays, so now you can line dance 5 days per week! Your Life Story will be a volunteer led class taking place on Saturday mornings, and Gardening for Seniors will be available on Friday afternoons. We also have Chair Zumba and a second Zumba Gold Dance Fitness class. If you have suggestions for contract classes please let us know! You can always leave a note and drop it in our comment box near the concierge desk.

Not to be outdone by classes, we are also planning a fun line-up of events slated for 2024 that includes a Line Dance Night, Luau, Summer Concert, Grandparents Day, and more.
