We would like to give special thanks to the Rotary Club of Oak Park for recent grant funding which supports the programs as well.
Current ongoing activities include: art, ceramics, weaving, lapidary and jewelry making, yarn craft, sewing, stained glass, Spanish, game days, open studio times, international folk dancing, yoga, basic fitness, genealogy, yoga for healthy aging, feature film and documentary watching and discussion, tech help and more!

The Board of the Senior Citizens' Center has offered longer group travel programs in the past and we hope to do so again in the future.
The Repair Café is now held the first Saturday of the month at the Fox Center, 624 S. Oak Park Ave.from 10am - 1:30pm,
The Repair Café brings together members of the community who volunteers who show how repairs can be made.
By repairing broken, torn or non-functioning items,
we keep them out of landfills.
The Center is also in charge of the Housewares room at the Economy Shop.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us sort, price and display items and also to work at the sales.
