2020 Programs and events

Under the direction of Executive Director, Frances Bengtson, Soledad's recreation is expanding to reach all members of our community. We believe in the "need to do recreation" as an essential element of the human body and positive psychology. Recreation activities often done for enjoyment, amusement, or pleasure is also a great way to stay healthy and fit. Improving your individual health and quality of life can improve the quality of health of our community.

Our programs and events are planned out to provide the highest quality experience for our members by following our core values:

Be positive & cheerful. Know your people. Work with integrity not just honesty. Teach peace. Give back.
