Active Adult Activities Abound!

When asked what they consider to be major factors in maintaining a good quality of life as they grow older, people rank living independently and remaining active right at the top of the list. Research has shown that social interaction offers older adults many benefits. Staying socially active and maintaining interpersonal relationships can help maintain good physical and emotional health and cognitive function. Relationships and social interactions even help protect against illness by boosting your immune system We love helping make Holdingford and St. Stephen socially active, and in turn, enjoyable communities for living. And we invite everyone to join us at our events.

  • Holdingford Lunch: every Tuesday, noon, enjoy a hot lunch at the Holdingford City Center. Our cook Kathy Gerads is a great cook— dessert is always something special. Join us for just a $4 suggested donation. Immediately following are rousing games of 500 Rummy.
  • Lunch & Learn Program: This program includes entertainment, education and a hot meal. All are welcome. Holdingford: first Wednesday of month from 2 - 4 p.m. at the Holdingford Legion Club. St. Stephen: third Tuesday of month from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at the St. Stephen Church.
  • Exercise Programs: Exercise and line dancing: every Wednesday from 9:15—10:45 a.m. at the Holdingford City Center. Loretta Fischer leads the exercise and Irene Schmidt leads the dancing.
  • Outings: throughout the year we offer opportunities to travel together and enjoy a concert or other event. These events are available at a low cost and sometimes free when grants are received. Our bicycle surreys are available free to older adults throughout the season and for rent at very low cost to everyone.
