Host Scott Clapson is back with the first episode of Senior Stories, a new series from the Chetco Activity Center. In this segment, Scott meets with long-time community member Jim Barrett, an active man who can often be found playing cards at the Activity Center or walking around town.

Chetco Activity Center

Chetco Activity Center

Jim has led an exciting and serendipitous life. He spent his early years playing junior league baseball before settling in Brookings, where he spent twenty-five years as a sports announcer for KURY Radio and sixteen years as a playground aid for Kalmiopsis Elementary School. Join us as Jim talks about pinochle, the perils of the DMV, and his philosophy that “everybody is good at something” and that life is just as much about luck as it is about having fun.

The Chetco Activity Center is located at 550 Chetco Lane (behind Subway) in Brookings. For more information or a schedule of weekly and upcoming events, call 541-469-6822 or visit their web site at ChectoAC.org.
