The purpose of the Senior Center's online bulletin board is to share opportunities and information that will enlighten, entertain, educate and enhance the lives of our senior population, 55 years of age and older.
The online bulletin board is a platform for non-profit, community and senior services groups to share information such as free educational seminars, socially-engaging presentations and volunteer opportunities. Posted information must be approved by the Senior Center staff. If your organization has a no-cost event or volunteer opportunity for older adults you would like to share, please email Outreach Coordinator Tiffany Hunt at email@example.com.
