The Montville Senior Center and the Montville Senior Club are now one entity. In the past, the Club dues were $10.00 yearly and there was no charge for Center dues. To make things much less complicated and more efficient, there is only one membership—the Montville SENIOR CENTER MEMBERSHIP. The annual membership dues are $25.00. (I am certainly able to work with any senior that cannot afford the membership dues, please come see me—we can
absolutely work this out) Though most folks have not had any issues, few have made indirect comments so I wanted to remind everyone the Montville is one of the only centers in our area and very few throughout our state that does not charge for most of our classes and programs. I spend a great deal of time writing grants and my dedicated staff and volunteers work very hard on all of our fundraisers so that we can offer these programs for free. The dinners that we have and our lunch program are fundraisers so that all of our seniors can participate in the programs without concern of being able to afford them.
For a quick breakdown:
$25.00 year = $2.08 a month = $0.48 a week = $0.06 a day
Instructors for one month range between = $200—$1,000 (per classes or programs) we presently offer over 30 programs (and can participate in all or some or none) seniors can also come down for coffee & pastry every morning (no additional charge), lunch daily ($1.00 donation request to help us off set items needed), socialization, health programs, computer use, library & more.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I am more than happy to address!

By the time you read this, Rose City Senior Center’s Pickleball courts will be in full swing (pardon the pun). With the generous donation from the Edward and Mary Lord Foundation and matching funds through the American Recovery Plan for neighborhood revitalization, we were able to install two regulation sized courts right here on the grounds of Rose City Senior Center.
► Courts will be for the exclusive use of Senior Center members during our normal business hours (Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.)
► After 4 p.m. and on the weekends, courts will be open to the general public until 10 p.m.
► Please remember to scan-in prior to using the courts as we’d like to track usage.
► Senior Center members may borrow paddles and balls during hours we are open.
► Courts will be reserved at certain times for Senior Center classes (times will be posted),
otherwise courts are open on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please see Mike if you have any questions.
