Get Involved

​​We promote physical, social and mental well-being

The BASC is your home away from home, and we invite you to get involved to keep the BASC humming and serving the needs of the aging population. We invite all ages to get involved. We have high school students who help our patrons with technology questions and elders up to 100 years old who attend our exercise classes. There’s a place for you at the BASC!


If you prefer to donate funds to help the BASC achieve our mission of promoting physical, social and mental well-being, we have listed those options below, as well.
