Highland Friendship Club offers an extensive variety of low cost activities that are fun and beneficial for our members' social lives as well as educational. Offerings continually adapt in response to the ages and interests of members.  Create an account and register for activities through Active Net site. 
Important note: Unfortunately Active Net times out after 15 minutes of registration time. To keep from losing your registration information because of the time out, it may work best to register for classes in one-month periods of time vs trying to complete a full semester of registrations within that 15 minute period.

"HFC has really changed my life with all the activities I do. I have made a lot of new friends. And I started participating in Special Olympics when HFC formed a team to join. I play flag football, basketball, bocce ball and golf! I like all the HFC activities I do, but my favorites might have to be cooking, card making, and Friday Night Out"
