Lincoln Center offers a diverse selection of educational, health, fitness, creative arts and recreational offerings. A great variety of classes and activities are offered each year, including woodcarving, quilting, foreign languages, opera, writing, lectures on environmental issues and international concerns. Other opportunities include health information and screenings, a walking club, driver refresher course, exercise for all fitness levels, and recreational leagues. New classes and programs are continually developed in response to need.
Primary participants in senior center programs are adults 55 years of age or over. Adults with disabilities or caregivers (when accompanying an adult) are also eligible to participate.

Newcomers are always welcome!
If you haven't visited us before, stop by and the Senior Center Director will give you a tour. Bring a friend along, but don't worry about coming by yourself--the atmosphere is casual and you'll quickly make new friends. Any Portage County senior is eligible to participate in Lincoln Center classes and activities. There's no membership charge, but some classes require fees to cover costs.
You don't have to join a class to come to Lincoln Center. Drop in any time--read a magazine or newspaper in the lounge, watch a favorite program, browse in the Holly Shoppe, play a game of cards, see this month's art gallery exhibition, or take a break for refreshments at the Coffee Stop.
We look forward to seeing you!
We publish two senior center classes/activities catalogues annually: Autumn Offerings (comes out in late August) and Winter/Spring Offerings (comes out in late December).
