Quotes from LEC Clients:

“Life changes occur slowly for me. My financial situation is basically the same during this decade of life, but the Life Enrichment Center has always enriched my life as a major contributor to me physically, informatively and also socially, a melting pot of flavors.”

“Life Enrichment Center to me is a place where if a rich man is having a bad day, he can come to the LEC and they won’t say, ‘What’s that rich man doing here?’ They welcome everyone. I love it here!”

“I have been coming to the LEC for a long time. I like the variety of classes that are available and all the friendly smiling faces.”

“I come to LEC because it’s a great and fun center. The crew is nice to get along with and they have many good programs to help people out. I bring a few people here from time to time for them to get certain help they might need. Hooray for the Life Enrichment Center!”

“I’m new to the Life Enrichment Center. I come here to use the fitness equipment to help with my Fibromyalgia. I meet lots of great people and the food is wonderful. Next week I’m going to try the computer class because I’ve been told it’s a great class for someone with limited computer skills.
