CH Senior Center News

Some members of the CH Senior Activity Center's arts and crafts group.

The Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center (SAC), located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a wide variety of programming for Cleveland Heights residents 60 and older.

Participation in the arts has proven to be an integral part of successful aging. SAC offers many arts programs; classes in music, language, dance and the applied arts are available at low or no cost.

One such program, the arts and crafts group, meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, 1–3 p.m.  Project ideas come from the group and its leaders, Susan Roberts and Leone Lee.

Repurposed items are a main source of materials for projects. At holiday time the group was pleased to have the opportunity to offer their craft items for sale. Popular projects have included jewelry, clocks, ornaments, garden decorations and cards. There is no charge to participate and no arts experience is necessary.

For another project, SAC is seeking 12 participants to commit to a project funded by the Ohio Arts Council. Everyone has a story to tell—this project will help you learn how to tell yours. Call 216-691-7377 for more information and to reserve a space.

The Senior Activity Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A complete schedule of programs is published in the community center’s newsletter, which is available at Cleveland Heights City Hall, local libraries, the community center and online at For more information and to register for any program, call 216-691-7377.
