City of Akron Commission on Aging
The Senior Citizens Commission was formed in 2016 (now called the Commission on Aging) with the goal of making Akron a better place for people 60 and over to live. The commission meets monthly on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00 PM. The meetings are currently being held virtually and anyone is welcome to attend.
Day Trips

Social Wellness is an important component in a person’s overall health and wellbeing. With our Day Trips, we promote socializing with others as well as getting out and exploring our community. Whether it is signing up for a “Let’s Do” trip or having an adventure with your Senior Club, we love our day trips.

Check out the Recreation on the Go tab for more details on upcoming outings.
