Programs – The Senior Center plans events on a monthly basis. Below is a listing for what generally occurs. For more details on events not listed below, check the Calendar Section and/or the News Section.

Fitness – Participants can trial any class without obligation. Please notify the Senior Center office if you are trialing a class.

All participants are encouraged to participate at their level of fitness/comfort. Any physical concerns are to be addressed to your personal physician. Questions about modifying the routines are to be directed to your instructor. All instructors are CPR certified and qualified in the class they are teaching.

Classes that utilize the Pass System: With the Pass System, the participant purchases a card which has a specific number of classes on it that must be used within one year of purchase. The Pass must be brought to every class. Attendance will be tracked and when your “punches” are used, a new pass must be purchased.

Classes that are Session Based: These classes will have a specific start and end date. Participants can elect to attend all of the classes or half of the classes. Class sessions typically run for 2 months.

Music Classes – Explore your creative side and challenge yourself mentally by learning to play an instrument.

Education/Enrichment Classes – Learn new skills in the areas of the arts, technology, health and more.  Through education develop and help maintain your mental abilities as well as enhance your self-esteem and creative needs. Explore and develop your interests.

Cards/GamesA variety of choices for group play and individual play. Promotes mental stimulation and provides for socialization. They stimulate memory, attention skills and have great social interaction which works on many parts of the brain.  Our games programs include a variety of levels from basic to more challenging options.

Social Scene – The Senior Center plans, often with meals, events that are offered to provide socialization and entertainment. Any excuse for a party is considered whether it be to celebrate a National Holiday or just to have some fun. A regional dinner dance is held annually also to allow for socializing with friends from the other towns in the county.

Health Services – These services are provided to help older adults age at home and stay as well as possible.  Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of the programs.

Nutrition Services – The Senior Nutrition Program, administered by TVCCA, offers nutritious meals on Tuesday through Friday at 11:45am. You must register for a lunch at least 24 hours in advance.


    Program Fees

    The Senior Center has been tasked with structuring its fee schedule so that the program fees collected for a

    specific program will cover that program’s cost. This new policy will take place starting FY20/21 (July 2020). In preparation of that goal, each program will be reviewed regarding revenues and costs.  Additionally, area

    senior centers will be polled regarding their fees. This change may affect session fees – it may affect session length – it may affect whether the Senior Center can continue to offer passes good for one year – it will likely make the Senior Center increase its  fundraising efforts.  We would like to hear any ideas that you have. Over the summer months as we gather data, we would like to hear your suggestions and/or concerns.

    Please stop by the office at any time.

    Credit Card Payments

    The Senior Center has been accepting credit card  payment for trips and programs for over a year. There has been no extra charge added for credit card use. That will be changing. Once our data has been collected, a new policy will go into effect. There will be some sort of convenience fee added for credit card payments.
