“A place where no Senior will ever walk alone”


Program 15

“Affordability should be given top priority over accessibility” 

About understands that its Arts, Crafts Programs cannot please every members’ taste and needs. So, we will try to please the majority.  


Because our membership will want a variety of information from fiddle (country) to violin (classical) music and from Paint-by-number kits to the old master painters, will try to accommodate as many members as possible. 


We will give two or three options when we recommend a product, service or event. Example: Music – we will showcase opera events, and dinner theaters and live music and club events. 


The majority of information will be tailored to the 50+ population and directed at products, services and events that cater to seniors. 


Affordability will be given top priority over accessibility.
