CH Senior Center News

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.

SAC is the recipient of a grant from the Ohio Arts Council—part of its Creative Aging Ohio Initiative to encourage new, innovative arts programming. SAC will use the grant to focus on storytelling from a personal perspective.

The program, Our Stories: Portrayals of Life, is free, but can accommodate only 12 participants. Register soon to reserve a spot.

Participants will meet at SAC on Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning April 2 and culminating in a reading at Cain Park on June 15. Arts professional Joanna Hunkins has been hired to direct the group in play reading, essay writing, theater games and thoughtful self-exploration.  

Starting March 2, SAC will offer classes in Basic French ($25 for an 8-week session).

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.
