Sr Rec Center Newsletter - October 2016

The October Wylie Senior Rec Center Newsletter for adults age 55+ is now available on our City webpage.

Due to the recent hail storm, Wylie Sr Rec Center participants are meeting at Waterbrook Church located at 507 Thomas St.

Join us for fried food and flowers as we visit the State Fair and Dallas Arboretum. Compete in a pie-baking contest, practice your bean bag throwing, and paint a pumpkin to take home with you at the Fall Festival on October 7th.
