Senior Matters Programs

Most Senior Matters offerings are held in Room 33 The Senior Center at the Third Street Center in Carbondale. 

We need input from seniors and others as to what activities would interest our seniors. We would like you to email our Program Committee member listed under "Contact Us," and tell them what you would like to see us develop for you.

The site will be used in the future for the weekly senior luncheons sponsored by Garfield County and the State of Colorado.
