Coffee With Series
Ages 50+. All are invited to have coffee with a public employee of the City of Springfield or Willamalane. Free coffee is available in the lounge during the program. This is an opportunity for public service employees and community members that they serve to come together — over coffee — to discuss issues and learn more about each other.
|Last Tuesday of the Month||10:45-11:30am||Free|
Ages 50+. Experienced hand quilters work on pieced tops for community members as a Willamalane Adult Activity Center fundraiser. Quilters that are new to hand quilting are encouraged to come and learn more. For inquiries, call 541-736-4444.
Ages 50+. Experienced volunteers facilitate cribbage, Uno, coloring, plastic canvas and other craft activities in the lounge.
Old-Time Music Afternoon
Guitar player and singer Bruce McLennan returns to play old-time melodies. Tap your toes, sing along, or dance to your favorites.
Ages 50+. Calling all puzzle fans. Our puzzle table is free and available to anyone who wants to join in. Puzzles can also be checked out to take home.
