To cover mailing costs residents are charged $6/year, non-residents pay $9/year.  Newsletters can be picked up free of charge at the community center or senior center. Subscriptions run from January to December.

Both residents and non-residents of Westmont are encouraged to participate and are warmly welcomed at all activities and events planned for Seniors at the Westmont Park District. Wherever your interests lie, you will be sure to find something to please you. Age is a state of mind! Come on out and discover for yourself what is available. Perhaps this is the year you will try our chorus, or join our bowling league. We do the planning; you bring us your sense of adventure and a little spare time. Now is your time to enjoy yourself and meet some new friends too.

Classes

Currently on the agenda is Watercolor, Tai Chi, Zumba Gold and Ageless Grace chair fitness.
