A wide variety of books may be borrowed from our Resource Center. Each week exercise classes are available for all fitness levels free of charge.
We host Hasenpfeffer and Pinochle card parties, Wii Bowling, Golden Texas Hold ‘Em, Bean Bag Baseball and Shuffleboard Tournaments once a month. Blood pressure and weight screenings are held twice a month, made possible by staff from Chestnut Knoll and Bayada Hospice.
A hot lunch is served daily and is shared around tables with other members and guests.
