Computers and Technology
This award winning peer-to-peer teaching model program offers lectures, workshops, and numerous one-on-one assistance sessions each quarter and regular drop in lab opportunities.
Exercise and Wellness
A variety of exercise programs (up to 15 different types of class each quarter) are offered. Several Silver Sneakers© and RenewActive™ classes are also offered. If cost is a concern, you can use the Friends sponsored scholarship to get involved.
These activities change each quarter and include film series, concerts, lectures, celebrations and more. Some are free and others have a small fee.
A great way to get to out and about from a simple lunch out in a nearby town to a featured show at the Temple Buell Theatre. Education, history, dinner theaters, concerts, gambling, Stock Show, horse racing, and many more opportunities provide destinations that are fun, engaging, easy to get to (let us do the ticketing and driving).
