Allen Weems, Program Director, is responsible for planning and managing activities, events, trips, and programs for our members. Our programming goal is to offer a wide variety of experiences and education that allows members to go places, learn new things and be active in a safe and social environment. Examples of trips: a day trip to the theatre, a train ride, shopping trip and to local attractions. The center also provides out of town and overnight trips to places like Savannah, Myrtle Beach and Williamsburg.
As a part of our Lifelong Learning program, the center offers educational programs that cover many different topics of interest; to include financial, armchair travel, Bible studies, language and cooking classes. Arts and Crafts is another well-established program at the center, including basket weaving, painting, jewelry making and quilting. There are plenty of opportunities to join in the fun. With the addition of the computer lab, members can use the center computers daily and enjoy taking classes, games and checking emails.
A detailed listing of the daily programs, events and activities can be viewed in the center’s newsletter. The newsletter is emailed to each member. The Program Director can be reached at 423.753.1083.
