Castle Rock Senior Center has become like a second home to me. The staff always greets volunteers and members with a smile and a willingness to assist in any way they can. As a volunteer I look forward to spending my time not only with the staff but with other members engaging in activities. The center offers a wide range of activities for all age groups and eagerly takes suggestions for new opportunities. I have become a member of the Board and enjoy the camaraderie and candidness of the group. I'm looking forward to running for office and hopefully being reelected

I am a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels and have been doing this for over two years. CRSC with VOA is responsible for this program in Douglas County, and they do an excellent job organizing and directing the program. The people i have worked with there are professional, courteous, friendly, and personable, and I have enjoyed their company and working with them. Also, the Center is always well kept and a pleasure to visit. Ken Schader

The Castle Rock Senior Center has a monthly planning guide that CANNOT be matched. There are multiple activities EVERY day. PLUS the Senior Shuttle ride program that operated Monday thru Friday: shopping, doctor visits, prescription p/u, trips to the Senior Center for activities. In addition, the Center has (3) 14 seat mini buses for activities: shows, restaurants, special tours and events (ex. National Western Stock Show). I do not know of another Senior Center that comes close to matching Castle Rock !!!!!

The senior center does so much fir us. The ride service is a lifeline for castle rock seniors who are unable to drive. There are many activities and everyone is so friendly and happy to help. I love the games I do and really appreciate the “no deadlines” library where I can pick up a book or just sit in peace a read for a bit.

I learned about the Castle Rock Senior Activity Center as I began volunteering for Meals on Wheels. The CRSAC is a site to pick up these frozen meal boxes for delivery. I had no idea the scope and magnitude of resources that this place offers. They offer everything that those over 50+ could ever need and imagine. For those who are home bound and unable to drive there are shuttle services and meal delivery. There is an onsite lunch program for those who'd like to socialize and have a hot meal. They have your special interest groups and afternoon of games. Beyond that, they have activities to enhance your "life in the second half." These include ziplining, snowshoeing, whitewater rafting and other trips and outings (out to lunches, out to dinners too). I wish everyone could have access to these types of programming.

I joined the Castle Rock Senior Center in 2014. They offer a wonderful variety of services, education opportunities, sports leagues, and activities to help keep seniors active and engaged. I so enjoyed their mission that I joined their ranks as a volunteer shuttle driver in late 2014, and finally joined as a board member this year. I can’t say enough good things about the mission, staff and committed volunteers.

My wife and I moved here from Wisconsin during the summer of 2016. After an extensive search for an area that suited our needs, we found that Castle Rock was ideal. We had a home built and immediately started looking for ways to give something back to this great community. We found the Castle Rock Senior Activities Center, met a most cordial staff, and was introduced to the many numerous functions that CRSC performed for the Senior citizens on this area. Both of us immediately became volunteers……and now with over three years of involvement with this outstanding organization, we have found that ‘Loving Life in the Second Half’ is a true and meaningful goal and mission of the CRSC. They provide numerous activities for their members by providing them with various trips throughout our areas to dining, entertainments, river rafting, snowshoeing, plays, museums, zip lines and many other events.

These activities are made possible with our fleet of buses, cars, vans and handicap vehicles, making these events extremely enjoyable by the CRSC members. To support these activities, we have a highly extraordinary staff that coordinates all these events with our many dedicated volunteer drivers that have been qualified in all the vehicles they drive. This process works extremely well and has earned CRSC an exemplary reputation in this community. My wife and I are extremely proud to be giving back to this community through the Castle Rock Senior Center.

I joined the Castle Rock Senior Center a few years ago. Just last week I was at the Arapahoe Race Track to watch the horses run. It was a great afternoon. We took a ride on the centers bus and did not fight traffic ourselves. Next week I am going to a balloon animal class. Once I learn I am going to teach our granddaughter how to make a dog. A really great group of people helping each other. I am there to stay.

I have been involved at CRSAC since shortly after I moved to this fair city. Early in 2015 I began volunteering as a shuttle driver then as a bus driver for events. The staff, to a person, really care for their members and work hard to make sure there are many events for them to enjoy from cards, to bingo, to out-to-lunches, out-to-dinners, mystery trips, movies, reflexology, chair massage, BP checks, even drama classes and many others. They are always open to suggestions from members of places to go, things to see and experience. I'm very proud to be a volunteer and very happy to be a member. This is one outstanding organization.

I moved to an apartment Castle Rock in Oct 14 from TX where I was active in several things besides my small acreage where I gardened, mowed, built stuff and generally stayed active and busy. My daughter knew I'd need something to do with my time. She suggested volunteering as a driver for the "Senior Center. Was the best move I could have made. As a volunteer driver I drive shuttle cars that pick up seniors who need rides, buses to events such as dinners, lunches, plays, etc, and specials to take seniors to doctor appointments in the Denver area.
In the last 2.5 yrs I have observed just how much the staff and volunteers care for the seniors of this area. They go to the ultimate to make everyone welcome and to find and attempt to care for the needs of their members.
I have come to know the staff on a personal level and call each of them "friend". I also call myself friend with many of the volunteers and drivers. To a person they are caring and considerate of those they help.
The CRSAC is a prime example of an organization run efficiently but with heart. I'm proud to be associated with it and the people involved. I can say without hesitation that I get much more than I give.

I joined the Castle Rock Senior Center about 15 months ago as a volunteer driver. They provide so many numerous services, activities, and support to all their members above and beyond anyone's expectations. Their commitment to the delivery of Seniors to and from medical appointments, many various activities within the Senior Center, many visits to various restaurants in our surrounding areas, Colorado Springs and Denver, as well as trips to various casinos both in Cripple Creek and Black Hawk, trips to Wildlife Sanctuaries, historical sites, etc., etc. I truly believe the CRSC staff and all their volunteers are very dedicated in making sure that "Loving Life in the Second Half" is their goal for all their members.

They are always ready to help. The staff is very knowledgeable, and very friendly. I volunteer for them when I can and they are ALWAYS very appreciative with anything that I can do. My elderly mother is a member, and it really helps to keep her busy and to make new friends. They always have something going on over there, from simple games to wonderful outings, lunches and even dinners dining out they also have all kinds of crafts, workouts, and specialty events.

The people at the Castle Rock Center Center - both staff and seniors - are among the friendliest that you could ever wish to be around! I've been a member for about 10 years and participate in their Senior sporting activities (softball and golf). Those would not be possible if it wasn't for the support given from the Center. If you live in Castle Rock, please come check it out - there is a place for you!

The Castle Rock Senior Center continues to provide services, to the senior community in Castle Rock (1,000+ now), that include:

-new adventures
-rides in a Senior Center owned car, and/or bus, for field trips, medical, grocery, etc.
-ongoing learning opportunities
-lunches that are served 3 times per week
-plus many activities that provide an environment to easily make new friends and socialize with existing friends.

The seniors are consistently treated as friends and with respect by the staff and are given many opportunities to volunteer for other seniors and the community. Any opportunity to care for the seniors is at the top of the Senior Center list of values and goals.

I highly recommend this to all of my friends that are considering becoming a member.
