SRC Classes & Clubs

No longer is retirement seen as a time to rest and relax.  Today’s seniors are ACTIVE!

SRC is your go-to place to find classes and clubs specifically for seniors who want to get involved! Keep checking back, as we will be adding new opportunities as we grow and expand our offerings of classes and clubs for seniors.

Seniors, if you have an idea for a class or would like to lend your talents to a new class or club, contact Michelle Meier at 785-727-7878, email, or mail it to the Senior Resource Center, 745 Vermont, Lawrence, KS 66044, or bring it to our temporary location at 2920 Haskell Ave.  Call (785) 727-7880 for more information.
