Connect, engage and learn through one of the many social and intellectual programs and events for active adults at the Weinstein JCC. Opportunities for seniors to remain active and vital abound at our Center. The 5400 Club, Enrich for Life and Food for Thought, the Grand Tones and many other programs keep older members circulating in and contributing to the identity of the Weinstein JCC and the community at large. Be a part of one or all of our enriching and engaging activities for active adults such as cultural activities including films, concerts and lectures.
The Weinstein JCC and Jewish Family Services have teamed up to create two new and innovative programs designed to provide older adults with a monthly activity that enlightens and engages. After the educational Food for Thought speaker series, seniors can spend an afternoon at EnRich for Life, with a specially designed program each month. Programs vary month-to-month (September through June) and participants have the option to choose an “active” or “creative” track.
The cost is FREE, and lunch is provided. RSVP is required and should be made to (804) 545-8611 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This group, consisting of retired and semiretired men and women, meets each Monday throughout the year. Each meeting features an outstanding guest speaker.
