About Friends in the City (FitC)
Friends in the City (FitC) was founded by FCCRC to accomplish two primary goals: (1) to promote the development and maintenance of supportive social networks for older adults and (2) to create a mechanism for planning and hosting a wide variety of activities, events, and groups for its members through a network of volunteer coordinators. FitC provides the opportunity to meet others who enjoy similar activities within a warm, comfortable, and inclusive environment.
Membership in FitC makes it easy for older people to take full advantage of the following benefits of urban living:
- exploring museums and cultural institutions
- attending concerts and dance events
- experiencing stimulating talks on an array of topics
- socializing with friends
Inspired by the values of the Society of Friends (Quakers), FitC’s founding goal is to maximize healthy aging through participation in the cultural, civic, spiritual and compassionate life of the city.
FitC welcomes members of all religious, ethnic, and cultural identities.
