Programming for Senior Citizens has been an on-going part of the spectrum of programs at Western Avenue Community Center. This program began with neighborhood folks who were in need of a place to occasionally gather to keep active, learn new skills, play games and make new friends.

Activities include:

  • Stretch and Tone classes

    Cost: Free - Monday and Wednesday, 9:15 - 10:15 AM. Low-impact aerobic workout targets all major muscle groups by using Dyna-bands and light hand weights.

  • Monthly BINGO Potluck
