Over the past several years, the Cathedral City Senior Center has served an official “cooling center,” however programming expansion for seniors has left them with no additional space to accommodate the annual cooling center program. Nevertheless, members and the public can take advantage of the many classes and activities that are offered during the summer in the larger air-conditioned rooms and overflowing into Tierra Del Sol space next door. They include food pantry, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, Excel at Yourself fitness class, birthday brunch, ASL words and phrases, bingo, bridge, Mac Users Group, Constituent Services with office of Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia, square dance with Boots and Squares, Senior Advocates of the Desert, LifeStream Blood Bank (July 12, 9 am to 3 pm), Care Pathways (12-week course in caring for an older adult), knit and crochet club and Deaf Advocates, among many others. Also, registered participants enjoy lunch at the senior center on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
