The Charlotte Senior Center welcomes newcomers, builds community, and engages visitors with courses, activities, events & presentations.

Re-opening

The Senior Center began re-opening in stages starting on June 7th as some classes return to the building.  This process will be a slow transition and dependent on volunteers who can help with hosting. By September and the Fall Session all classes will be back at the Senior Center. Activity groups and instructors will be contacted separately about their return dates. 

See the Summer Schedule for more information.

Masking: At this time, we ask that individuals who have not been fully vaccinated (for any reason) to wear a mask and maintain a six-foot distance from others when inside the building.

If you are not vaccinated and do not wear a mask (for any reason), we ask that you delay your visit to the Senior Center.

Meanwhile, many activities, presentations and online courses are continuing on Zoom. 

Watch for more announcements regarding re-opening here, on Front Porch Forum and in the Charlotte News

7/28: BIKING in the DOLOMITES with Don Porter
Follow a troupe of intrepid bikers on a short sprint in Italy through some of the most beautiful mountain terrain in the world.
