Our Big Reveal is Coming!

 

We are so excited to share our new name with you soon. We will unveil our new name and brand at our Annual Fundraising Breakfast on May 14th. Please see our Big Reveal breakfast event page for more information.

One thing that will not change is our broad, engaging and fun programming. In fact, we plan to continue to add events, classes and activities based on what you tell us you want and need.

Stay tuned! We hope you like—or can graciously accept—our new name.

 

 

Let’s Go On Tour

Our Membership Welcoming Committee offers tours every Monday  at 11 a.m. Our tours are open to all new members and anyone who is just curious about the Senior Center.

Meet us in the lobby for a 45-minute tour of our building and programs. We’ll show you all the Senior Center’s fantastic spaces and answer your questions. After the tour, we invite you to stay for lunch!
