Coming Up at Lapham Center

The Fall Newsletter is being mailed town-wide as we have done every fall for years. Our other seasonal newsletters will be available on this website and at the Center. For most classes you can register online or call us with a credit card. You can also mail the registration form. Registration starts as soon as the postal newsletters arrive and will continue until classes are filled.

All adult New Canaan residents (not just seniors!) are welcome to take classes and participate in other activities at Lapham. There is no membership fee or requirement beyond town residency and the ability to participate. There are many new and revamped classes being offered this fall—be sure to read all the newsletter and check them out! We will email all those whose email addresses we have; if we don’t have yours, send it to us at
