All centers remain
closed for in-person programming
until we can safely reopen.

As conversations and planning continue concerning the reopening businesses, we are listening to officials regarding best practices. Our centers remain closed for in-person programs for now, but we are continuing to offer virtual and outdoor programming to keep our members active and engaged.

We miss our center and program participants very much, but the health and safety of everyone, especially adults over the age of 65, is our top priority.

We continue to provide essential services and resources (especially food) to older adults in our community. If you know of an older adult in need of assistance, please call our resource line at 615-743-3416. We are here to help.


Long recognized nationally as a model rural center, FiftyForward College Grove lies in the heart of southeast Williamson County. Housed in a former elementary school building operated by the Williamson County Department of Recreation, our center is welcoming to the College Grove and surrounding communities.

It is a dynamic and growing center serving adults 50 and older in a fun-filled, active learning and social environment.  We offer fitness classes, art instruction, and educational programs. We have a talented writers group, a lively book club, and a tenacious quilt guild. The center draws participants from Williamson County and surrounding communities of Rutherford, Marshall, Bedford, Davidson and Maury counties.

The center staff is delighted to arrange for a tour and introduction to our programs. Information about classes and activities can also be found in our quarterly publication, Forward Focus, available at the center and in area public libraries.

Special Events

FiftyForward College Grove plays host to two special events every year that brings the community together: The annual Katie Reed Golf Classic, named for one of their very special longtime members and College Grove resident. This golf tournament is usually held in May or June, weather permitting.

The second event is their annual Community Pancake Breakfast, usually held during the holidays in December and sometimes featuring a surprise visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus. The proceeds for both events benefit the programs and services at FiftyForward College Grove.
