Friday Night Youth Activities

Friday Night Parties in the Youth Activity Center have been a family favorite for the past year, so we’ve added Twinkle, Twinkle to allow the younger ones to enjoy the evening as well. Both programs are scheduled on the same Friday each month from 6:00 – 8:30 pm to allow parents to enjoy some much deserved quiet time.

Yoga Spin

Yoga Spin is coming to The Center this winter! The class is a combination format that trains your heart and lower body with a Spinning ride, and then stretches your hard-worked muscles with yoga asanas. Join instructor Suzan B. on Thursday mornings from 8:30 - 9:25 am beginning with the Winter Session.

All winter programs are available online at
