What’s New for Active Adults and Seniors

Are you newly retired?  New to Naperville?  Or looking to meet new friends or try new activities? Each weekday, the Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center (ARRCC) is a hub of activity for those 50 and older, offering a variety of exercise classes, drop-in clubs, movies, and special programs. 

This fall is a perfect time to join in the activities. In addition to the ongoing groups, including pinochle, duplicate bridge, Bunco, Canasta and Dominoes, there is a new Cribbage Club that is inviting people to stop by on Thursday, November 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  The club will meet the second Thursday of each month and welcomes new members.  If you have questions, call Peter at 630-215-8679. 
The Drop-In Painting Group meets on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-11:30 a.m. to draw, paint and socialize. New participants are always welcome. Joe, one of the members of the group, will teach interested students how to create a beautiful glass ornament using alcohol inks. This class is scheduled for Tuesday, October 29 from 9:15-9:45 a.m.  The class is free, but registration is required, either at the desk at the ARRCC or by calling 630-848-3604 or 630-848-3530.

Two new, free seminars are being offered for those 50 and up in November:  “Identity Theft” on Wed., November 6 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. and “Intro to Technology Terminology” on November 19 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Register for each one at or in person at the ARRCC.
Naperville Park District trips are also a great way to meet people and enjoy an outing. Destinations include theaters, museums, pro sports games, and more. New this fall, see “Beauty and the Beast” at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora on December 8. Another new trip is to see “White Christmas” and enjoy Sunday brunch in Munster, Indiana on Sunday, November 24 from 11:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Register for these trips at or in person at the ARRCC.

More programs will be available with the release of the 2020 Winter Program Guide, available online on November 25, 2019 at
