Senior Citizen Programs

MRC Sponsored Trips for Seniors:
The MRC sponsors trips for Senior Citizens throughout the year. These trips are for Seniors, aged 55 and over, ONLY, and do not include children at any time. Special arrangements can be made for adult helpers to go on these trips at their own expense.

Classes:
Participants living within Mulvane School District #263 will pay the posted fees. Participants living outside of the school district will pay $5.00 more per class or trip. This is to balance the tax placed on our in-district supporters.

Line Dancing, Yoga: Chair, Yoga: Slow Flow, Zumba Gold and Zumba Gold: Chair  are all daytime classes in the Senior online class listings with special pricing for Seniors, 55 years and up. If you sign up online the discount will apply automatically as long as we have your correct birth date.
