Whistlestop has a new fee structure in 2015 for classes, activities and special events at our Active Aging Center; there are now modest fees or suggested donations requested for most programs, and discounted rates for Whistlestop members. The new member annual fee (not applicable to current members) is just $5. This membership entitles you to reduced rates for classes and meals in the café and also supports the funding for our center by improving our method of collecting participation data. Please pick up an application at our Front Desk or call for more information.
