Terrific Tuesdays

“The expanded adult and senior programming and classes over the past year have been a gift to the community! I love coming to Terrific Tuesdays for the educating, socializing and of course, the nosh. I can’t wait to see what’s next and hope it will continue!”  – S. B.

Tuesdays from 10 – 11:30AM

Are you looking for social, educational and cultural programs that offer a fun, informal, comfortable setting with those who share the same interests as you?

Terrific Tuesdays is a group for ages 55-plus who meet weekly to enjoy presentations on a variety of topics from interesting speakers, concerts and many other activities. These can range from film discussions to exploring a current Phoenix Art Museum exhibit with a museum docent. Weekly programs begin with coffee, snacks and social time.

A $4 donation is requested at the door. Meetings are usually held at the EVJCC, although some are held offsite .

New members are always welcome and no membership is required to attend Terrific Tuesday programs.

This group is open to singles and couples. We hope you can join us!
