Recreation & Community Activities

Book Club

Our Book Club meets in Starbuck once a month. This is a great program for those who love to read! It gives readers an opportunity to read a common book and then discuss the book with others. This has resulted in some very interesting and lively discussions!

We are currently reading All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews. Our next meeting is February 28 at 2pm at Riverdale Apts.

 

Exercises with Liza

Join us in Starbuck on Tuesday mornings at 10 – 11 a.m. for a variety of exercises led by Liza Rasmussen. Exercises held at Riverdale Apartments.

Pickleball

Come play pickleball with us! This court sport combines the rules of ping pong, tennis and badminton and is played with 2 or four players. Its easy for beginners to learn but can develop into a fast-paced competitive game for more experienced players. Equipment is available for beginners who would like to try the game. Please bring clean indoor shoes.
