Social events range from dances and holiday parties to trips and informal gatherings. On more than a few occasions, single seniors have met and developed meaningful relationships with other singles. In fact, the center has been the site of three weddings. Classes vary in intensity, from low-impact to more strenuous and demanding activities.
Among the services available for seniors at the center is information on qualifying and applying for Renters Assistance, which involves financial aid for low-income seniors.
Please note: The Clovis Senior Center programs are for senior citizens who are independent and can care for their own personal needs.
