More Than Just A Place To Have Lunch

slider-clubsw (1)

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. It 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 and basket-weaving and painting classes are just a few of the regular activities at the center. Special activities like community-theater productions, and Hot Dogs with Santa beckon to the community and visitors alike. The Golden Diners is just one of many opportunities for senior citizens at the Gathering Place.
