Senior Citizen's Activities

We don't have specific activities just for senior citizens because our adult programs are open to adults of all ages.
However, we are looking for a few good men and women to teach our younger patrons how to play dominoes, checkers, and chess.
We would also like to find people to read to children after school.
If you are interested please call us at 817-783-7323.
For activities just for seniors - The Senior Citizens Center is located at 201 E. College Avenue and has various activities every day. 
For more details and activity schedules please call The Senior Citizens Center at 817-783-8481
