Benicia Seniors’ Happenings
Wonderful things are happening for seniors in Benicia. All it takes is a phone call or a visit to the center to get involved.
There are games and clubs to participate in – bingo, puzzles, bridge, bookclub, lending library, and the use of two new laptops: arts and crafts classes, including varied crafts, watercolor, and the Solano Quilters Guild: and Spanish and Italian classes. You can even learn how to tap dance, take a fitness, Yoga, or Tai Chi class, or get tech help.
You can take day trips to places like Golden Gate Fields, or Cache Creek Casino, or venture further out into the world for longer vacations. Planned trips for 2017 include Arizona Spring Training Getaway, Great Trains & Grand Canyons, Western Frontiers, and Heritage Highlights.
