About the Center

The Bosque Farms Community Center was built in 1991 to support the whole Village and was remodeled in 2012. It is available for use by the Community for meetings and other social events for a nominal fee.

The center also has an activity schedule of special events with an emphasis on events for Seniors.

Please take a moment to look over the calendar and upcoming events at the Community Center. Activities change month to month. Evening bands and dance classes are for all ages!

It is true that the Community Center is a senior meal site for the Older American Program, but if you haven't reached that magic number of 60+ to qualify for the lunch program, you may still enjoy many of the other activities.

Letter From the Director

Ready or not! Here it comes, this labor of love for the community! 
 
Many senior citizens in the area are aware of the treasure that we have at our community center!  It's wonderful to see these people coming together, forming networks, working, playing, dancing, sharing, laughing, crying and eating together.  The reason this group is generally more familiar with the activities here, than the rest of the community, is because they have helped to form some of these activities by brainstorming or volunteering, then have told their friends, neighbors and family about them. 
 
With that said, the center is not exclusive to seniors.  The Summer Recreation Program, for children ages 6-16, just wrapped up this year's session with a wing ding of a party!  A few family events are planned throughout the year.  In September the Girl Scouts, 4-H, and Valencia County Community Bands will all be in full swing again and the yoga class will resume its regular schedule.  Most of the classes and groups that meet are open to all adults, and the dances are open to the community.  If you have any questions about the activities, feel free to ask.  If you are interested in starting something new, PLEASE contact me.  Recently, a volunteer from the community offered to teach beginning painting.  The class started off a little slow, but has really taken off now!  We may actually need to limit the number of participants.
 
Our current dance instructor will not be able to teach for the next few months, so we will be using that time to practice what we've learned.  If you like to dance and would like to practice with us and share some of your moves, or you are brand new to dancing, we're just going to get together and help each other out so that when opportunities to dance present themselves, we'll be ready! 
 
ICAN (Ideas for Cooking and Nutrition) classes will be offered every Thursday in August from 10:30-11:30 for all ages.  With the abundance of fresh produce available locally, this is the ideal time to learn what to do with it!!!  Classes will focus on fruits and veggies: incorporating more of them into you meals; shopping for them; and preserving by dehydrating or freezing them.  These classes are provided free of charge by the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service in Valencia County.
 
I will be out of the office from August 1st through the 7th.  Therefore, responses by email will be delayed until my return.  At this time, there are no planned outings.  If scheduling permits later in the month, outings or additional activities will be posted at the center. 
 
Hope you and yours are doing well!
