Elder Bearies

We know that older adults need a sense of community and a need to strengthen social activities. In response to this need, TRC has developed several programs to encourage and motivate older adults to take action and get involved. All Elder Bearies' programs are adults ages 50 and better.

Elder Bearies' Programs:
