No matter who you are or what youve ever thought about a senior center, youre likely wrong. The La Plata County Senior Center offers a haven for Durangoans of a certain age. For starters, the center has fresh and nutritious food served daily for only a few dollars. Theres tai chi, bridge, ping-pong, computer classes, driving courses, art classes and ceramics to name a few offerings. Day in and day out, dozens of Durangoans are turning back the clock at the Senior Center, which is located next to the La Plata County Fairgrounds.
