About Senior Trips & Activitiesseniors2

The mission of the Village of Elmwood Park Senior Trips and Activities is to enhance the lives of mature adults (50 and over) with regular events. Trips and bigger events occur about once a month, and the Cards & Crafts group meet regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For all events, seniors are always welcome to invite adult friends and family members, including those that do not reside in Elmwood Park.
