Calling All, Including Seniors, to Respond to Recreation Department Survey

Let the Piedmont Recreation Department know if you are interested in more programs for adults and seniors.

For generations the Piedmont Recreation Department has fostered recreation programs designed primarily for youth.  Sara Lillevand, Piedmont’s new Recreation Director, and the Recreation Commission are actively seeking input from all sectors of the community including SENIORS and EMPTY NESTERS on future programs.

In recent years, Piedmont adults have noticed a need for a place to gather, a Senior Center with age appropriate activities.  Some of the activities suggested are: gentle fitness classes; neighborhood walks; games; lectures; hand crafts; art classes; “My Trip” travel programs; dance; book reviews; book exchange; memoir-writing; computer skills; singing; brown bag lunches; etc. Volunteer service exchange programs are popular in many communities to allow seniors to help each other age in place, a goal of Piedmont’s General Plan.
