What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Semester Program

Classes are organized into four ten-week semesters each year with offerings in Academics, Art, Computer, Dance and Hobby and Craft. From classes in the history of art and comparative religion, to computer and genealogy, to lessons in piano, bridge and knitting, to line dancing and tap, there is a full schedule of exciting offerings.

Population(s) Served
Seniors

A total of sixteen fitness classes are offered on a monthly basis. The goal of the program is to encourage members to be proactive in taking care of their health through physical fitness classes which provide encouragement as well as an opportunity for socialization. A range of courses is presented to address varied interests as well as varied physical capabilities. Founders Hall offers classes in Aerobics, Strength and Balance, Tai Chi, Yoga, Seated Yoga, Water Aerobics, Stretch and Flex (which is a mostly seated work out for the whole body), and Core.   Fitness Classes relate directly to our mission. Encouraging our seniors to move to their best ability keeps them both physically and emotionally well.

Population(s) Served
Seniors

Social Events include Monthly Teas, Let’s Play evenings, Pot Luck Dinners, Dances, Wine Tastings and Holiday Parties and Group Trips. All these events are focused on providing the opportunity for social interaction and creating a caring community that perpetuates continuity and connection so that as seniors encounter transitions, such as social and physical change, they are never among strangers.
