Green Valley Recreation
Mission of Green Valley Recreation is to facilitate opportunities for
members to pursue and enjoy their recreational interests. Retirement is
a time of personal change: a new home in a new community, new friends,
a new daily schedule and pace, changing bodies, and new meanings to life.
Green Valley Recreation offers members opportunities to re-create their
lives through service, learning, play, fitness and the arts.
This is done through classes, concerts, tours, special events, exercise
facilities, arts and crafts studios, and a host of other activities
- all managed primarily by volunteers.
