Hallie Q. Brown Community Center serves as a gathering place for seniors to enhance their independence through connection to services and activities. Our most active programs are The Magnificent Golden Agers, Retired Men’s Club and OASIS. All groups meet at the center and are always welcoming new members.
The Magnificent Golden Agers
The Golden Agers began in 1940 as the “Boys and Girls of Yesterday.” They are a group of women who grew up at or were otherwise involved with Hallie Q. over the years. Membership starts at the Speed Limit (55), and they are always open for new members. Rechristened the Magnificent Golden Agers, the group meets twice a month on Tuesdays to socialize, share stories and information, play Bingo and much more. For more information, you can click here for their brochure.
The Retired Men’s Club
The Retired Men’s Club is a “Friendly Club” that meets twice a month on Thursdays to share stories and information, socialize and connect. Like the Golden Agers, the Club is comprised mostly, though not exclusively, of men who grew up or worked at Hallie Q Brown or the surrounding Rondo community. Membership is for those who are retired. For more information, you can click here for their brochure.
OASIS (Older Adults Supporting Interacting Socialization)
OASIS offers activities and opportunities for Seniors to engage and learn. It is currently in the process of updating its offerings. Please check back soon for an updated schedule of activities.
