Monthly Community Dinners offer themed meals prepared by skilled volunteer cooks, fellowship, and an opportunity to catch up on the news of the community. Special programs and speakers are presented throughout the year. The ACA’s Community Dinners are among the community’s special events and are well-attended. It’s a good place to meet neighbors and make new acquaintances.

The ACA’s annual Holiday Craft Show is held on the first Saturday of December in conjunction with the annual Astor Christmas Parade. The Craft Show attracts skilled artisans from the area who offer unique arts and crafts items perfect for Christmas gifts and home decoration. Hot dogs and chili are served from the ACA kitchen. Beautiful gift baskets and other items are raffled by Astor clubs and organizations and the Astor Garden Club’s live plants exhibit is always a favorite. Come join the fun and get into the Holiday Spirit!
The Holiday Spirit is alive and well at the Astor Community Center on the second Saturday of December each year as the community’s children are treated to breakfast, gifts, face painting, a visit and photo with Santa himself, and the chance to choose and wrap a gift for their parents. All children living in the community are invited to attend. Breakfast for the kids is free. Parents can join their children for breakfast for only $2.50. It’s a fun community event and everyone is invited to come, have breakfast, and enjoy the children.
