Encouraging the Art of Living

 

The Walnut Creek Seniors Club is a 501(c) organization dedicated to enriching the lives of seniors in Walnut Creek.  We are also  a senior; the club was founded in 1952.  Our headquarters are in Civic Park Community Center.  We have volunteer receptionists on duty weekdays from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm to help with any questions.

The club is open to people 50 years old or better, living in the Walnut Creek area. Membership benefits include access to the mini-bus, local and international trips, a senior softball league, seminars on such subjects as fraud prevention and housing, great prices on special events, free social services and a variety of drop-in activities. The Walnut Creek Seniors Club regularly schedules trips, games, and parties. Members receive a monthly newsletter that lists all the Club activities and services.

Some examples of what we do:

  • Run a mini-van service for our members. For just $1, our seniors can go anywhere in Walnut Creek.
  • Promote fitness through softball, tennis, walking, and bowling groups.
  • Sponsor seminars on topics of interest to seniors, such as cooking demonstrations
  • Sponsor book discussion groups and craft seminars.
  • Provide opportunities to socialize over cards or music and at dinners and dances.
  • Provide the opportunity to travel on day trips or extended trips.

In short, we encourage the art of living.

Dues are only $15 annually, and run from January 1 through December 31.  To join our over 2,500 current members, come by the Civic Park Community Center between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm., Monday through Friday or call 943-5851 if you would like more information.  Here is a membership form that you can print out and mail in with your check.      2018 Membership Application.

  1. I volunteer at MT Diablo State Park and we found a hearing aid at Deer Flat this morning. I was told the Walnut Creek Seniors had a large group here at the time, is there anyway to find out if you had or know of who the leader of the hike was? Or could you post a message that a hearing aid was found here? They can contact me at my cell number or email. It will be at the lost and found at the Visitor Center at the Mitchell Canyon entrance.
    Thank you

    • I passed on your message to the leader of the group that I think was at Mt. Diablo that day. I hope you were able to re-unite the hearing aid with its owner.

    How about putting a phone number with an area code or an address so a newcomer can either call or locate you?

    • We have a receptionist at the Civic Park Community Center Monday to Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. They can put you in touch with the correct person. 925-943-5851 is the club number.

    I think I must have let my membership lapse as I no longer get the newsletter. How do I rejoin?

    We have a collection of Long Play records from the 40’s and 50’s and would like to donate them to a group that could use them.

  5. Do you list local volunteer opportunities? I am the Volunteer and Outreach Manager for Contra Costa Interfaith Housing and we are always reaching out to find Homework Club Volunteers to help in Pleasant Hill and Concord.
