Our mission is: Encouraging mature adults to engage in healthy living, socialization, life-long learning and community connections. We are glad you are checking out what we have to offer. Take your time going through it; you don’t want to miss anything!

The history of our Center includes over three decades of information. In 1979, we became a 501C3 nonprofit organization and we were located at 704 Front Street, Brainerd, MN. Renovations were completed and in September of 1983 the Center moved into the old fire station on Laurel Street, Brainerd. Memberships grew as in 1992 there were 560 members. In 1999, Bethany Good Samaritan gifted a building located at 803 Kingwood Street to the Center. Renovations began and shortly the Center moved to their new location on August of 2001. Membership and programs continue to grow as you will see from the information contained in this website. If you are interested in what you see here; please consider joining our over 1,470 members!
