Kern County senior citizens are invited to attend California State University, Bakersfield’s 60+ Club Possibilities Day on Thursday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the CSUB ‘Runner Café.
Possibilities Day is the 60+ Club’s annual kick off event, which invites retirees and community members more than 60 years of age to learn more about the 60+ Club and explore a variety of interest groups and action network teams that are available to them. Interest groups include everything from bridge clubs to bus trips, and explore topics such as health, investments, philosophy and the arts.
Members of 60+ Club receive advantages such as special ticket pricing to campus events, use of the Walter Stiern Library and attending specially designed courses. They may also volunteer for campus action networks, which help out with athletic and performing arts events, the CSUB Facility for Animal Care and Treatment, Stiern Rose Garden, Well Sample Repository and the Todd Madigan Gallery.
According to 60+ Club President An Chamberlin, the organization is designed to provide senior citizens an opportunity to socialize, get involved and exercise their bodies and their minds.
“It is the best organization for seniors in town,” Chamberlin said. “If you’re a senior and enjoy life, living and people, join the 60+ Club.”
This year’s Possibilities Day speaker is CSUB President Horace Mitchell.
Coffee, juice, and pastries will be served. Admission and parking are free.
The 60+ Club was founded in 1986 to create a partnership between the university and the community of retired persons. It is a member-motivated and member governed organization. Its purpose is to provide personal enrichment, educational opportunities, volunteer challenges, and social activities in a campus environment utilizing the resources of the university and experience of its members. There are no educational requirements to join and participation in club activities is voluntary.
The interest groups meet at various locations and different times of the month throughout the academic year.
Possibilities Day directions: Enter the campus at the traffic signal light on Stockdale Hwy. onto Don Hart Dr. East. Continue down Don Hart Dr. East and turn right at the blue and gold balloons. If the parking lot fills up, you may be instructed to park on the lawn area.
