Membership drive on at La Jolla Community Center

La Jolla Community Center (LJCC) is in the midst of a two- month-long membership drive to attract new participants to the adult center’s many programs and events.

“This is the first time we’ve done a membership drive and we are asking for all active adults in La Jolla to support and join the Community Center,” said Executive Director Nancy Walters, who has been with the LJCC since 2010. “There are some 14,000 active adults in the 92037 ZIP code and they should all be here and involved.”

Walker added that the center hopes to increase its membership roster by 25 percent. To that end, every new member who joins in April or May will receive a gift certificate for a free cooking class with the Opera Singing Chef, and will also be entered into a drawing for a grand prize of a $250 deluxe package from Bellini Beauty Bar on La Jolla Blvd. There will also be a grand prize for the member who refers the most new members during the drive.

An individual LJCC membership is $100 annually; a couple’s membership is $175.

Membership comes with such benefits as free classes (Zumba, yoga, Pilates), discounts on other classes, (cooking, language, computer, bridge) and daylong bus trips.

Seasonal memberships are available for part-time visitors.

For a brochure and membership application, stop by the community center, 6811 La Jolla Blvd., or call Walters at (858) 459-0831.

Other LJCC offerings include a Distinguished Speaker Series, art classes, tai chi, writing workshops, investment clubs, professional development courses, book clubs, holiday parties and more. For further details, visit
