***Please take note of the changes:
Whistlestop’s Active Aging Center and Jackson Café will be closed on December 25, December 26, January 1, and January 2 in observance of the holidays.
Whistlestop has a new fee structure 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. It is simple and easy to become a member, so call 456-9062 by January 1 to REGISTER FOR FREE, or after January 1 the new member annual fee (not applicable to current members) will be 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.
