Playing music and singing has been an important part of Ben’s life. For several years, he had been part of the jam session at one of the mall health centers, where he also volunteered five days a week.
O'Connor Senior Center
The John T. O’Connor Senior Center, located in Caswell Park, is an activity center that provides a place where seniors can not only add years to their lives, but add life to their years. The Center serves Knox County residents age 50 and over. There is no membership fee to attend the Center, although some classes may have a fee to support the cost of the class. Programs at the Center focus on health services, physical fitness and exercise, recreation, and education.
A new computer initiative, Tech-Savvy Seniors, offers a variety of classes on devices such as laptops, tablets, smart phones, and
e-readers. Click here for specific classes and times.

Lunch is available in the Dine-A-Mite Diner, Monday through Thursday, from 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The O’Connor Center operates the Daily Living Center, an adult daycare program located in North Ridge Crossing.
