The Calabasas Senior Center celebrated its sixth anniversary and post-COVID reopening June 3 with an event that included residents, city council, city staff, old, new and prospective members.
The celebration included entertainment, refreshments, prizes and more.
Guests met instructors and saw demonstrations on upcoming classes, including art and fitness. There was information on programs, activities, clubs and excursions, as well as a chance to renew memberships and sign up for new membership.
The Calabasas Caring Club also collected items for the Eastwood Ranch Foundation, an animal rescue organization.
The Calabasas Senior Center provides a gathering place for senior men and women, 50 years and older, where they can enjoy activities that contribute to continued learning and enrichment, socialization with other seniors, and participation in recreational programs that promote healthy lifestyles. In this comfortable and inviting environment, seniors can enjoy special interest clubs, seasonal events, and gain valuable information from the popular and diverse classes and lectures provided by the Savvy Senior program.
The Calabasas Savvy Senior program includes a variety of classes, lectures and excursions that are interesting and exciting for seniors who would like to continue practicing favorite skills and hobbies, stimulate thinking, or try something new. Lectures, demonstrations, discussion groups and classes focus on entertainment, fitness, technology, music, fine arts, personal development, hobbies, and arts and crafts.
Interesting and diverse excursions are offered all year long, including day trips to museums, gardens, missions, nature sites, and special seasonal events. Field trips include lunch and transportation, providing an opportunity to make new friends along the way.
The CSC activities include special interest clubs for members and non-members to enjoy. You might like to join the Book Club, Movie Club, Hiking, Gardening, Scrabble, or Photography Club. If you’re not part of a Mah Jongg, Canasta, or Poker group, there is a club already formed for you to join. The sports room is a good place to meet fellow seniors for a game of darts, billiards, or ping-pong.
You might want to relax in front of the TV screen and cheer your favorite teams to victory. Check the monthly calendar in the newsletter to find which hours you can enjoy open paint time in the art room or open card play in the card room. Consider the Calabasas Senior Center your home away from home.
Registration is now open for programs and classes for residents and non-residents. Visit cityofcalabasas.com for the activities brochure.
