OVER 50’s DANCE
NOTE: Due to Senior Center renovations, the Tuesday evening Over 50’s Dances throughout the remainder of 2020 which occur on the second (2nd) Tuesday evening of each month will take place at St. Andrews-Covenant Presbyterian Church located at 1416 Market Street. (we are not sure about December’s dance but will have more information closer to the date).
This is due to on-going renovations at the Senior Resource Center and resulting space needs for SRC programming.
