Seniors on the Go!

The Clarkston Community Center hosted our first Senior Programs Showcase on Thursday, Aug. 18 from 10 a.m. – noon.  Seniors on the Go was a free event for adults age 55 and above to learn about the variety of programs, classes, workshops and social events available to older adults at the Clarkston Community Center, 3701 College Ave., Clarkston, Ga., 30021.  www.clarkstoncommunitycenter.org

The Clarkston Community Center provides many opportunities for seniors to learn, make friends and master new skills.  Our Senior Showcase will give seniors and their families a chance to see all of our programs at once and ask questions about them.

During the event, instructors and program leaders will staff information tables detailing activities including English classes, cooking, sewing, art, music and computer skills, as well as life skills such as banking, handling legal issues and grocery shopping.  Attendees will be able to move from table to table, collecting information and learning what’s available.

We got a good response from the community with over 75 attendees and hope to make Seniors on the Go an annual event.  The new classes will start in late September.
