NAM’s Fifty Plus Senior Center offers a comprehensive array of services to seniors in northwest Houston. From an exciting calendar filled with social gatherings, creative activities, physical fitness, entertainment, and trips into the city and surrounding area, it’s easy to see that seniors at Fifty Plus are anything but retiring!
Every month, the program offers an exciting calendar of activities to choose from. There are cultural trips to the theater or museums; educational classes on money management, nutrition and safe driving; physical activities like yoga or line dancing; and games ranging from Mah Jongg to Wii bowling. There is a yearly fee of $35. There’s a $1 daily fee to participate in activities. This includes luncheons, seminars and day trips. The $1 daily fee is a small amount that helps support the 50+ daily operations.
Three days a week, seniors can also gather at NAM’s 60+ Cafe for a hot, nutritious lunch – free of charge. For more details on the Cafe, see below. In addition to enjoying the many activities, Fifty Plus members can choose to contribute their time and expertise to NAM. Retirees come with skills in technology, business, creative arts, administration and so much more. NAM gives seniors an opportunity to use their experience through volunteer positions as diverse as their background.
Call (281) 885-4619 to RSVP. We look forward to dining with you soon!
