Please note we are getting a new roof beginning the week of Oct 8th and ending late November. During construction there could be an odor from the tar.
We assure you this is non toxic and not hazardous to you. There will also be loud noises especially from 6am-10am. If you are sensitive to noise or smells please keep this in mind.

September is National Senior Center Month!!
This Year’s Theme is… Senior Centers: Building Momentum
This year’s theme was chosen to highlight how senior centers build momentum for aging well in their communities. This year, senior centers celebrate their 75th anniversary, and our center celebrated 27 years! Just as older adults build on their past experiences and lessons learned to create a rich life, senior center professionals are building on lessons learned from 75 years of experiences and wisdom. We now know the research and importance behind Connecting older adults with others, and that making friends matters. That Learning new languages and skills and exercising helps care for your body. That Giving back at the senior center and within the community fosters purpose and a more meaningful life. And that as long as each of us lives, we want to continue Growing to be the most we can be. Senior centers have built a holistic experience where all of that is possible. This year, celebrate the many ways our senior center builds momentum for people’s health, economic security, and independence.
In Honor of National Senior Center Month
