“I have had a more fulfilling life by joining the Senior Center of Elk Grove because of the classes that are offered free or very minimal charge. I joined the Rock Painting class and have learned how to paint rocks. It is another craft that I thought I would never know how to do. Now I have a variety of different type painted rocks that are so fun to make and also I learned how to do another type craft. I give them to my relatives for Christmas gifts, or just for the fun of it.”
