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.

This fall, SAC is offering new Saturday art workshops: collage, printmaking, silk painting, clay and more. Take advantage of this opportunity to try something new and explore your creative side. Previous art experience is not needed, and the cost is just $5 per workshop. SAC’s art programs are made possible through a Creative Aging Grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

Also new this fall is Intro to Hum and Strum—a group for those who want to learn to play a folk instrument or those who have played before and want to practice their skills. Bring an instrument with you, use one of the instruments SAC will have on hand, or just sing along. Harry Spicknall, group leader, will provide basic instruction and assist with minor repairs.  The first meeting is Monday, Sept. 12, at 9 a.m.

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.
