Members of the Richland Senior Association (RSA) deserve praise for spending yesterday morning (6/27) cleaning up garbage in the Richland Parkway.
Along with volunteer efforts, the group enjoys sightseeing trips, events, education presentations, a gift shop, dances, themed potluck dinners, and a whole lot more.
The association says staying connected with activities such as volunteerism keeps the members' brains sharp, improves their mental health, increases self-esteem and improves quality of life.
The RSA works with individuals, existing retirement communities, other non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies to develop programs and activities serving needs today while building a roadmap for the future.
The RSA currently sponsors the following regularly scheduled activities and initiatives:
  • 3rd Thursday Educational series, presenting talks by subject matter experts on wide array of topical issues and subjects.

  • 3rd Friday Dances at the Richland Community Center.

  • 3rd Friday Potluck dinners offering people to renew existing friendships and develop new ones.

  • Monthly/Quarterly trips and tours to places of interest.

  • Seminar programs developed in association with local senior-oriented businesses to inform seniors and their adult children.

  • The Sound Barrier Initiative (SBI) to assist qualified seniors in the purchase of hearing aids.

  • Travel Scholarship Fund enabling financially restricted seniors to participate in RSA travel events.

  • Tri-Cities Scholarship for Geriatric Studies $25,000 endowment established with Washington State University to provide scholarship support to nursing students with a commitment to geriatric service.

The Richland Senior Association is a nonprofit corporation that has been active in the community since 1995.

Although based in Richland, 40% of members live in Kennewick, Pasco, West Richland, and surrounding areas.

The organization is open to all!
