CLUB CHALLENGE (COMING SOON 2014)
Club Challenge is a social program for persons with disabilities who enjoy meeting new people, participating in recreational activities or are seeking activities in their early retirement years. The mission of Club Challenge is to promote the power of social engagement for individuals seeking friendships.
Challenge Enterprises will plan and implement activities of interest for young and older adults who are working, preparing for retirement, in job training, or on a waiting list for services. The activities will be scheduled during the day and evening hours to meet the individuals needs and desires. There will be modest fees for specific activities that take place at the bowling center, movie theater, golf course, game rooms, and short bus rides. There are also more relaxed activities for those who prefer the laid back social time such as visits to the library, theater, and local concerts.
Challenge Enterprises will offer training to all individuals interested in using the Clay Transit system.
