The Greeley Active Adult Center (AAC) announces hiring a new facility supervisor, Erin Cranston. From Grand Junction, Colorado, Cranston spent the last twenty years in The Woodlands Township in Texas. She is happy to return to her home state and begin the AAC’s recreation supervisor position. She has enjoyed learning everything the center provides and meeting all the members. For those who haven’t met her yet, Cranston will attend the Active Adult Center Open House from 3-6 p.m. on Tuesday, February 21.

Open House Showcases AAC Amenities

The AAC in Greeley is more than your average senior center. They offer participants a chance to connect with friends, make new ones, and join in activities, educational classes, sports, and travel opportunities.

“Many may not realize to become a member at the AAC, you must be 50 or older, but ages 21 and older can attend classes or use the facility by paying the daily drop-in fee,” Cranston said. “This open house is open to all.” Enjoy light refreshments, meet the AAC staff, and see what programs, classes, and excursions they offer.

“We’ll be hosting tours of the facility, highlighting the woodshop and lapidary, drop-in activities like billiards and shuffleboard, and offering a vendor fair,” Cranston said. “We expect over 25 local vendors and groups in attendance. Some organizations will include insurance companies, health care providers, and local service providers to answer any questions you may have,” said Cranston.

AAC Memberships will be available to buy during the open house. Members enjoy discounts on classes, a monthly newsletter, a parking pass, and other benefits. “We can’t wait to see everyone at this year’s open house,” said Cranston.

 A Diverse Background in Recreation

Cranston is enthusiastic about this new job opportunity. A Sam Houston State University graduate with a degree in kinesiology, Cranston is currently working on her master’s in business administration. For the past ten years, she’s worked in recreation. She has done everything from striping softball fields to managing recreation facilities. Cranston has a wealth of knowledge and is looking forward to sharing it with the AAC team.

Outside of work, she’s a huge Star Trek Fan and enjoys playing golf and hiking. Her favorite sports teams are Manchester United, Houston Astros, Houston Dynamo, and the Green Bay Packers. Cranston has three sisters, Callie (17), Natalie (26), and Stephanie (33), who are still living in Texas. Cranston and her boyfriend Gerardo moved to Greeley right after Thanksgiving with their two cats, Kitty and SnoopKat, and a tortoise, Clizby.
