Our Program Committee has been hard at work not only planning a diverse offering of clubs throughout the year for active adults aged 50 and over, but also restructuring the club to meet the current demand for programming. Many of the clubs will continue to meet on an ongoing basis and some have specific program dates. Clubs with grey titles have fees for participation. You will only need to pay when you are able to join us! You can find more information on each of these programs on our website (burlingtonrecreation.org) or by contacting the Program Committee using the email listed below.
Here are the major changes:
- We will now require all members register annually for the clubs they are interested in participating. Registration is easy; you can now register online! Visit our website, burlingtonrecreation.org, click on register and search for activity number 510007. As always, you can register right at the Parks & Recreation office. This will allow us to communicate in a more effective manner with all of our members.
- Additionally, the Club will now allow non-residents to register for clubs for a $10 annual fee.
If you have any specific questions about the new format or a club, please reach out to the Club 50 Program Committee at email@example.com.
