In 2002-03, through a special property arrangement with Metro Nashville and the Tennessee State Fair board, our agency constructed and moved into a beautiful new building on the Fairgrounds: the Patricia Hart Building. With administrative and program headquarters occupying the second floor, FiftyForward Knowles uses its ground floor space for classes and activities, occasional corporate meetings/ events and rentals.
From 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on occasional evenings, the center bustles with a variety of programs and classes. Among the most popular are computer lessons, SilverSneakers® Fitness Program, yoga, men’s group knitting and crocheting, scrapbooking, Spanish conversation, genealogy, book club, and a writer’s group.
To learn more about the offerings at FiftyForward Knowles, call the center or send your e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive weekly updates of events and programs. The monthly schedule is also printed in Forward Focus, available at the center and at area public libraries. If you have a Facebook account, check out the FiftyForward Knowles group page for a current list of events, classes, activities and projects.
