A  Typical  Thursday  at  the  Community  Center  

Every  Thursday  more  than  500  people  visit  the  Community  Center.    They  range  in  age  from newborns to people in their 90's -- and  every  age  group  in  between.  

The  Center  is   bustling  with  activity  all  week  long,  including  weekends,  with  morning,  afternoon,  and   evening  classes  and  meetings,  gallery  shows,  performing  arts,  and  community   gatherings.  But  Thursday  is  always  our  biggest  day.    People  come  to  socialize,  enjoy  the   music  and  art,  have  a  great  meal  with  their  friends  and  neighbors,  volunteer,  get  food   from  the  food  bank  or  to  talk  with  members  of  our  staff  with  some  questions  or   concerns  that  they  have.
