New Website to Stay Connected 
Would you like to know about programs or classes being offered at Community Thread, or about a special event you don't want to miss?
Are you looking to stay engaged by volunteering in the community? Perhaps you need resources to help you live independently. You can find the latest information at our new website.
The improved website has a number of features that make it easy for you to find information:
  •  A search function, where you will be directed to what you are looking for (for example, if you are looking for a ride, the search feature will get you to the transportation page to explain your next steps)
  •  An interactive calendar where you can get descriptions about classes, including any special fees or details
  •  Links to volunteer opportunities, including projects you can do with your family or church group (see Connect the Dots for some great ideas
  •  Maps to both of our senior center sites
If you are interested in resources on how to transition well through life, links to Aging Well can also be found at the bottom footer on each page. We hope you enjoy the new features!
