Upcoming Senior Center Classes

 

September is National Senior Center Month!!

 

2019’s Theme is… Senior Centers: The Key To Aging Well.

     This year’s theme was chosen to highlight how senior centers build momentum for aging well in their communities. This year, senior centers celebrate their 76th anniversary, and our center celebrated 28 years! We are celebrating this by highlighting the theme Senior Centers: The Key to Aging Well, and we invite you all to join us for National Senior Center Month! Senior centers are the future of what aging can be. Innovative programs hosted at senior centers can change the perception of aging, and create important community resources for aging expertise. We hope you will help us promote your center this September by sharing with your friends and neighbors how your center is the future of aging in your community.
