    ACES offers group activities, recreational programs and volunteer opportunities to Pima County adults age 50 and older. Our goal is to provide a variety of pleasurable experiences that will enrich and enhance the social, educational and physical well being of all who participate in ACES. ACES provides social interaction through games, luncheons with entertainment, day and overnight trips, theater presentations, movies and the opportunity to take part in community service projects. ACES encourages volunteerism as a form of recreation. Members are actively involved in collecting items for Youth on Their Own and provide assistance to schools. ACES provides baby bonnets for newborns at Northwest Hospital and volunteer for a number of county and city special events that are in need of assistance.
