Auburn Senior Activity Center has a lot to offer

The Auburn Senior Activity Center provides Auburn’s senior community with a variety of classes, activities and tours all year round. Here’s a look at what they have to offer:

Classes at the activity center range in everything from academics to art. The center offers AARP’s nationally acclaimed class on safe driving. Students of this class can freshen up on their driving skills and learn how to become a more efficient and safe driver.

In addition to driving, the resource center also offers a Spanish study group for people interested in enhancing their fluency of the language. The center’s website suggests this is for folks who are already speaking the language at an intermediate level.

Interested in expressing your creative side? The Senior Activity Center has you covered, with their two painting classes. Whether you’ve never touched a paint brush, or you’re working on Sistine chapel 2.0, the acrylic and watercolor classes are open to all skill levels.

Looking to get out and see something new? The resource center offers a variety of trips and tours throughout the year, according to the website. The trips range in duration from an afternoon out for lunch to a 2-3 day excursion. The trip schedule is subject to change however you can find details about upcoming trips on the Auburn Senior Activity Center website.
