Senior Programs

The Senior Community Center, located off Dickinson Street inside the Washington Center, holds a variety of programs geared for adults ages 60 and older. We are always looking for new ways to expand our horizons, and welcome your input and volunteerism! We are open weekdays, and rent the center on weeknights and weekends. Go to our rental page for more information.
The year 2020 has challenged us all, and we are determined to rebuild and surpass the attendance of our seniors as we open again. As of October 1, 2020, here is our WEEKLY PROGRAMMING (we need you to wear masks and social distance):
MONDAY

TUESDAY
50 Cent Bingo at 12:30pm.

THURSDAY
Baking with a Purpose. Second Thursday of the month at 1pm. We find folks who could use some cookies or cupcakes to cheer them, and like to surprise people with themed treats. We welcome donations of boxed mixes, flour, sugar, eggs, etc.
