The mission statement for the Club is as follows:

The objectives of this organization shall be to form a membership organization in the interests of and for the benefit of the Senior Citizens of the Crest Forest Community, promote fellowship among all members, to bring them entertainment, to broaden their interests, to encourage their participation in useful cooperative efforts, to be concerned with their well-being and mindful of their welfare, ready and willing to extend a helpful hand when needed so that none may feel alone.

 

Programs for CFSCC include the Senior Nutrition Program which serves seniors a full 3 course hot dinner every Tuesday and the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. This program was initiated in 2007 with a grant from the Department of Aging and Adult Services of the San Bernardino County. It serves over 6,000 meals a year for seniors. The program offers presentations to the seniors on nutrition 4 times a year and many different speakers on topics of interest to seniors. It is an inviting social event with music and fun activities. For many seniors this is the only social event they participate in during a week timeframe. Many take half their meals home for an additional meal. This program has served over 500 different seniors over the years. Grants and donations are secured to keep this program running.

 

A second program CFSCC offers to our home bound seniors is a Transportation Program which is handled through Mountain Transit’s Dial-a-Ride program at no cost to the seniors. They make their own travel arrangements to and from using a Voucher which is provided by CFSCC. This program has gotten many seniors out of their homes and out and about where they would otherwise not have this opportunity. CFSCC pays for this program.

 

Other activities offered by CFSCC include: Yoga, PEARLS put on by RFS, Zumba Gold exercise classes, paint classes, Dominoes, cards and board games, Ukulele classes, bowling etc. Classes and activities are offered as mentors or instructors become available.

 

 

CFSCC is housed at Leisure Shores which is a County owned facility. We rent out the facility to Mountain of Promise on a weekly basis and the facility is available for weddings, seminars, parties, family gatherings etc. for a nominal fee. Nonprofits may use the facility once a month for 4 hours at no cost.

CFSCC is sustained by the Thrift Store in Top Town. The store is owned outright by CFSCC and is the main source of income for the Club. The store accepts donations from the public and handles clothes, furniture, kitchen accessories, books and much, much more.

 

CFSCC is recognized as an organization who gives back to the community in different ways. We have donated to Rebuilding Together, Mountain Little League, Rim High School Scholarships, Rim Education Foundation and many more over the years. It is an organization who has participated in community events such as Jamboree Day Parade, RCRN Health & Resource Fair, the Community Picnic and other events.
