Classes & Activities for Seniors



Preregistration is recommended to avoid full or canceled programs. All activities held at River Road Park unless otherwise noted.



Bunco is played with three dice. Groups play for prizes and cash. Each round correlates to a number on the die; the first round correlates with the one, round two correlates with the two, etc. If it is round four and the player rolls the dice and three of them land on four that player gets a bunco. We provide the supplies and love to teach people to play. Contact Christy at (541) 653-3734 for information or email riverroadbunco@gmail.com. Bring a side dish for a potluck.
