We encourage any seniors who live in the area, or any family members of senior citizens, to come to the Senior Life Expo to see some of the programs, services, and things to do that are available for seniors in Castle Rock. There is much more available than you probably realize.
We are headed to Cripple Creek for a 2-night trip July 15-17. Due to the generousity of McGill's Casino, we'll be going by limo and staying there at an incredible price, just $92 per person, double occupancy, including free play cards and a ticket to the Butte Theatre for a play.
Each month we plan a variety of events outside the Senior Center, providing transportation as part of the Activity Fee. Check the calendar for current outings, which include restaurants around the Denver metro area for both lunches and dinners, trips to interesting museums and tourist sites, theaters, concerts, Mystery Trips which require a spirit of adventure, Bucket List day trips which are things people have always wanted to see or do, Casino day trips, and even overnight adventures.
