Senior Activities Center
Grapevine's Senior Activities Center (SAC) provides a wide variety of fun activities and needed services for local residents 55 and above. Located two blocks west historical downtown Main Street at 421 Church Street, the newly renovated facility provides a welcome retreat for friends, neighbors and new faces to gather and enjoy each other's company. Membership is free and some bus service to and from the SAC is available.
Whatever you have an interest in — there is an activity at the Center to compliment your passion. There are groups playing bridge and bingo, oil painting, learning basic computer, practicing T'ai Chi, enjoying potluck and and a movie night, knitting for charity, doing water aerobics, Mall walking, and defensive driving... just to name a few.
And events and classes are always changing. In most cases, registration is free, but some classes do have minimal costs.
The Center also supports a Red Hat Society for women who want to go on fun outings and have lunch in a new restaurant each month. Ladies leave at 9:30 a.m. and are back by 2:00 p.m. Trips vary monthly, so sign-up at the front desk is requested beforehand.
In addition, gentlemen who are 55+ are invited to participate in monthly camaraderie in the Fraternal Order of the Plaid Shirts. The group chooses a place in the Metroplex area for a bus tour each month, and also eats lunch out each trip. Please RSVP to 817-410-8130 when attending, and don't forget to wear your favorite plaid shirt! Check the monthly SAC calendar for details and times.
The Center offers a wide variety of educational programs and senior support services, including the "Are You Okay?" electronic re-assurance program. Administered through the Grapevine Police Department by telephone, the safety and welfare of a subscriber is checked daily. There is no charge for the service; contact the Center for more information.
Transportation assistance is also available and free, but reservations are required 24-hours in advance. Service is door-to-door and is also available for shopping, banking and medical needs of local seniors.
