The center provides a variety of services and programs for older adults 50 years of age and older. Becoming a member of the Center is easy. A short initial application is required. From there, membership dues are $24 per year for full use of the Center and inclusion in all programs. It's that simple.
Much of what we do here at the center is accomplished by our members and volunteers. We ask our members and volunteers to help make a difference for everyone at the center. There are opportunities in many areas and programs for people to lend a helping hand. There is no greater reward than the smile on someone's face for helping to make a difference in their life.
Our Center is more than just a place for a good meal and to meet friends. We run various programs for our members all year long that encourage participation. Our programs are designed based on the various desires of our members. From holiday celebrations to medical discussions, there is always something fun or educational going on at the Center.
