Visitors Program

Are you looking for intellectual stimulation, physical activities and social interaction?  If so, ASPEC invites you to enjoy our Visitors Program.

First time ASPEC visitors and their significant other are invited to spend four consecutive weeks at ASPEC for $50.

During these four weeks, attend our many Interest Group sessions, all led by ASPEC members.  Social events include weekly wine and cheese socials and a monthly "Evening Out" at a local restaurant. There are two film groups, tai chi and much, much more.

To receive a current newsletter and/or register for the Visitors Program, please contact:
