Seniors With Inquiring Minds (S.W.I.M.)

Seniors With Inquiring Minds (S.W.I.M.) is a Learning in Retirement movement that now meets a the Percy Bakker Community Center, on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. S.W.I.M. was formed in 1993 by seniors who wanted to keep their minds active and alert. We stand out in the movement because we don't depend on classes at the local college. S.W.I.M. creates its own programs or invites interesting speakers from the community.
