Positive Living For All Ages

Into the Future: A vibrant community resource for all ages

The Gathering Place has evolved into much more than a senior center. The daily calendar at The Gathering Place is filled with activities in which anyone, regardless of age, can participate. TGP sponsors day trips to theater, music and sporting events and extended trips to popular destinations. Movies, book discussions, yoga and fitness classes, quilting and knitting groups, basket-weaving and painting classes, and workshops and presentations on a wide variety of topics are some of the regular activities at the center. Special activities such as community-theater productions, Concerts in the Park, and Hot Dogs with Santa beckon to the community and visitors alike. Cafe 715 is just one of many opportunities for senior citizens at the Gathering Place.
