Nearly 28 percent of the Red Wing population is retired, according to projections since the 2000 census.
Anyone 55 and over, plus their spouses, can join the Red Wing Area Seniors Inc. That includes people living in Red Wing and nearby western Wisconsin.
The Senior Center is located in the Fairview Red Wing Professional Building and Community Center, 1407 W. Fourth St., formerly St. John's Hospital.
Members get discounted admission prices on programs and activities, a monthly newsletter, plus opportunities for service and education. Games and other activities, informational programs and entertainment all are part of the schedule.
The seniors operate Annadee's Closet downtown, a resale store.
The office is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For information, call (651) 267-3599.
Seniors also are active at Jordan Towers in downtown Red Wing. The Senior Dining Program, which is open to all seniors, is served there at noontime. Activities include crafts, movies, games and exercise class.
