The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center offers more than human services, classes and lunch. There are ongoing activities, too, and the range of interest is wide.

We have weekly walkers who meet at 9:15 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. We have American mahjong, Scrabble, bridge and pinochle. If you’re crafty, join the knitters on Wednesdays, Creative Hands on Thursdays and quilters on Fridays.

For those interested in writing, we have the Jottings group full of wonderful writers. The ACC Learning Group gathers every Monday for an interesting presentation on topics ranging from Rosa Parks to forensic science.

We also have a group that meets on Fridays to talk about investments.

All activities are run by volunteer coordinators; call the center for details, or let us know if you would like to start your own ongoing activity.

Call 503-635-3758 to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations.

Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and older and $5 for everyone else.
