Like many of you, we have been reviewing the ever-changing news of the Coronavirus (COVID -19). Based on the most recent information from the Florida State Department of Health, Clay County Health Department and the CDC, Shepherd’s Center of Orange Park has decided to cancel the Spring Session of Adventures in Learning.
The Spring session was scheduled to begin on April 6. The Summer Session begins on July 6, and we hope to see you at that session.
The Summer Session newsletter will be out available the first week of June.
In addition, the Golden Years Gala will be postponed until September 9, 8:30am. The Gala will be held at Sullivan Hall, 7190 US 17S, Fleming Island.
News about the Festival of Flowers will be shared on Facebook and email.
During this time of social distancing the office will be open, please call if you need someone to talk to or have any questions. Stay safe and healthy!

First Coast Seniors: Living Life and Loving It!
The mission of The Shepherd’s Center of Orange Park is to assist seniors 55 and up by improving their quality of life through educational programming, intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually.
Fun & Friendship
It's not just about engaging in learning – it's about enjoying life, meeting interesting people, being social, making new friends, and most of all, having fun! If you're a senior 55+, we would love to have you join us!
Adventures in Learning are classes that are taught on various subjects by knowledgeable volunteer instructors. There are four 8-week sessions per year. Please see our newsletter and class schedules for more information.
We celebrate and recognize outstanding Clay County Senior Adults who volunteer and contribute to the community with our service awards at our annual Golden Years Gala.
Friendship, Fellowship, and Fun for 55+!
