Activity Center for Older Adults
The Activity Center for Older Adults was started over 40 years ago by the late Sandy Friedman and late Nancy Terzino. By securing a federal grant they were able to convert the old fire station located at 910 State Street into the Activity Center for Older Adults. The ACOA was managed by the Swanson Center Board of Directors until April 1, 2022, when the La Porte Park and Recreation Department took the reins of operation through a grant received from the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte.
Our Activity Center for Older Adults is a place where citizens 55+ (as individuals or in groups) can gather for educational and recreational activities or simply come and socialize. One of our goals with the ACOA is to connect members to vital community services that will help them stay healthy and independent.
We would like to thank the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte for the grant received to continue the operation of the Activity Center for Older Adults.
The facility is located at 910 State Street, La Porte, Indiana. Calendars for the scheduled events are available on the right. For more information on the programs being offered, please call 219-326-5354 or email email@example.com.
