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. – call 925-943-5851.

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, free access to Lyft, 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.
  • We supplement our mini-bus with free Lyft rides during the hours the mini-van is not operating.
  • Promote fitness through softball, tennis, walking, biking, and bowling groups.
  • Sponsor seminars on topics of interest to seniors, such as fraud prevention.
  • Sponsor book discussion groups and craft groups.
  • 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.   You can get a membership form at the Civic Park Community Center reception desk, or here is a membership form that you can print out and mail in with your check.      2019 Membership Application.

  1. 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.

    I know a senior who lives very close by, has limited mobility and speaks only a little English. She is highly educated in Persian. Do you have any members from Iran or Syria or other Farsi speaking countries who could encourage her to join?

    Would you have a use for VHS movies or books on tape cassettes?

    I am looking for a used mobility scooter in good condition at a price I can afford. Do you know of someone who has a scooter they no longer need? I no longer drive, but I would like to get to the local shopping center at my corner. I am grateful for any help or suggestions. It is too short a distance to take Lyft, only half a block.
