Senior Programming at the Expo!

Release Date: 2016-11-07

One year ago, the Eighth District Senior Advisory Committee, in partnership with Councilmember Austin's office, launched a free program for seniors at the Expo Arts Center.

The Senior Advisory Council (SAC), after surveying a number of residents in the district, identified the need for a place for seniors in the Eighth District to gather, socialize and enjoy classes and group activities.  The activities take place twice a week -- on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The structure of the programming on Tuesdays and Thursdays is as follows:

  • 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.: Exercise class (Tuesdays: Tai Chi taught by Elizabeth Preston and Thursdays: Yoga taught by Veronica from Free Spirit Yoga) 
  • 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Guest speaker (Tuesdays) and knitting taught by Wini Carter, as well as arts and crafts by Shoshanah Siegel and Delfina Skalland (Thursdays)
  • 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.:    Lunch
  • 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.:     Music, bingo, cards and board games
