If you have never participated in our program before, we hope you will join us. We develop our courses, classes, and special events to appeal to a broad range of interests and abilities. If you’ve already experienced one or more of our programs, we appreciate your continued interest.

To see all that we offer, please view our 2020 spring catalog. For your convenience, you can download and print our registration form.

And please note that while classes are designed for those 50 and older, everyone is welcome to enroll.

Moreover, we are always looking for new ideas for programs that provide enjoyment, socialization, learning and networking opportunities, and making new friends. Consider it a Facebook connection without the computer! If you have an interest not covered in one of our programs or courses—or if you have a special talent or hobby you would like to share with others—please contact Susan Long with your idea. Her telephone number is (570) 624-3018 or, toll-free, 1-800-621-6325.

The 2020 Senior Expo will be held Oct. 20. Check back later for flyers and forms related to the annual event. 

Because we are constantly adding new classes and programs, please visit this website frequently.
