Calling all Seniors! Retired? Bored? Ready to meet some new friends?
Join the Silver Branchers!
The Silver Branchers began in 1988 as a group of seniors interested in meeting for fun and fellowship. The current group has continued this tradition and would like to extend an invitation to any and everyone who might be interested in making new friends. Meetings are held Thursdays from 1-3pm at the Wells Branch Rec. Center, 3000 Shoreline Drive, to visit and play games. We also have socials and take day trips to local places of interest from time-to-time (list below). Membership is free. Anyone 50 or older is welcome.

In case you may be looking for day trips in addition to those we have planned, the BACA Center in Round Rock has a list of outings at the following link:
To avoid the $5 extra surcharge for every trip, seniors can sign up for a yearly Baca Center Pass at 301 W Bagdad, Round Rock. The office is open 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday thru Friday. If you are only interested in avoiding the $5 surcharge on each senior trip, and not interested in the Baca Center facilities and weight room, then the yearly fee is $30. Without the yearly Baca Center card, you can still register for and attend Baca Center trips, but it will cost you $5 more per trip.
For questions, call the Baca Center at 512-218-5499.
