The Senior Circle will have a bake sale of holiday goodies Saturday, Dec. 10 at 215 N. Beeline Highway, Payson, in the activity room. Need a holiday gift in a hurry? How about a basket of baked goods? Senior Circle boasts some of the best bakers in Rim Country. Come in and purchase home-baked cookies, cakes and candies or simply come by for a cup of coffee or tea and a sweet treat.

Stumped at what to get Aunt Harriet for Christmas? How about a membership to Senior Circle? It’s only $15 a year and it could be the best present under the tree.

Senior Circle is a place where members are friendly, staff is helpful, activities are affordable and discounts are meaningful. We are a national organization that encourages a healthy and active lifestyle for adults 50 years of age and better. Membership allows you to enjoy health talks, in-hospital benefits, local business bargains and a wide range of discounts for prescriptions, vision care, hearing aids, hotel rooms, car rentals and more. You will also experience the satisfaction of participating in a full calendar of social events, exercise programs and travel opportunities.

You will receive the Circle News newsletter. Published four times a year, Circle News features local information including upcoming events, hospital updates, trips, physician information and a calendar of activities.

Inside Circle is a nationally published newsletter and is available exclusively to Senior Circle members. Each issue features chapter news, benefit updates, health information and much more.

Connect to other members with a Senior Circle Pen Friend. Letter writing or e-mailing is a great way to get to know members across the U.S. and make new friends.

Exercise programs are also very popular. A few of the programs we offer include Qi Gong, ZUMBA, line dancing or one-half off membership to the Tonto Apache Gym.
