(Bel Air, MD – April 3, 2009) – – Over the years, Harford County’s six Senior Activity Centers have taken on the characteristics of being more than just places for seniors to gather. Instead, they’ve become centers of extended learning, hallways of health, classrooms of recreation and a haven for wonderful friendships.
Whether you enjoy dancing or quilting, basket weaving or painting, woodshop or traveling, computers or cards, memoir writing or study of the Civil War…the opportunity to expand your horizons is always available. And what better way to make new friends than to engage in conversation over lunch.
