Welcome to Our New Website

Here you will find information on the Senior Center services, programs, and activities, and a variety of resources available throughout our region that enable seniors to live vibrant, active and healthy lives. The Center is housed in a beautiful historic building but it is our community of people that make it a truly special place to be.

At the Center you can join us for lunch, stop by for a game of cards, pool, Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue or Wii. Hone your dancing or singing talents. Meet new friends and acquaintances. Learn new skills or hobbies. Go out to museums, performances, special events, and meals with friends. Seek assistance with choosing the right insurance, managing medical issues, or solving financial problems. Be driven in comfort to the doctors or to the grocery store. If we don’t have what you want, speak up! My door is always open for suggestions, comments, and questions from our seniors and our community. We are here to serve you, and your input is essential to ensure that we are doing just that.  Send me an email under the “Contact Us” link, call or stop by to let me know what you think.

I do ask one favor of you.  After you have visited and experienced what the Senior Center has to offer, talk us up!  Tell your friends and neighbors about our activities and programs.  Invite a friend to join you the next time you come. You are our best ambassador, recruiter, and public relations specialist!

See you at the Center!
