Summer Schedule

The Summer Schedule is now available but there are many changes to come.  The Senior Center will begin 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. Priority is being given to those groups that have not been able to gather on Zoom. Meanwhile many activities, presentations and online courses are continuing on Zoom. Beginning in June this page will list only those classes that are still on Zoom.
