Recreational and social activities are an important part of independent living.  There are plenty of activities to choose from at the Delano Senior Center!

Delano Senior Singers
Do you like music and also like to have a lot of fun?  The Delano Senior Singers is a Choral Group that practices every Monday at 10:30 AM and performs at various events in the community.  New members are always welcome.  Come join the fun!

Lending Library
Do you like to read, but wonder what to do with all those books when you are finished?  Bring current books (hardcover or paperback) to the Senior Center and share them in the Lending Library.  Feel free to take some new books home to read.  No charge.

"Once Upon a Time" Story Readers
This group of retired adults reads and performs stories for children.  The books have been carefully selected to reinforce curriculum and to model positive behavior.  The cast of 6-10 players reads the parts of the characters in the story with a lot of expression and body gestures.  Story Readers dramatized stories with a message, provide a listening experience that stimulates imagination, encourage children to read stories with expression and provide time for interaction with older adults.  They will be performing in area schools throughout the school year. Seniors interested in joining this creative group of people should call the Delano Senior Center at 763 972-0574.

Ready Readers Book Club

The Ready Readers discuss new books every month. 

Looking ahead, Dale Swanson, author of “The Thirty Ninth Man”, will discuss his historical novel at the Senior Center on Wednesday, January 15th at 10:30am.  The novel weaves fictional events around historical facts culmination with the Dakota War of 1862 and a mass execution.
