Today’s senior centers are a vibrant, action-packed combination of services and activities. You will find all kinds of volunteer opportunities, services such as transportation and in home services, exercise activities, dance classes, educational programs and a tasty dining locale. During National Senior Center Month the Lewis County Senior Center is celebrating these shared experiences that build momentum in the lives of everyone around them.
From financial planning workshops to cooking classes and dances to technology classes, the Center is a community nexus where seniors find friendship, meaning and purpose. To share the power of these connections the Center has planned a couple of events to celebrate National Senior Center month, including a Heritage Day on September 24th at 12:00 noon. A representative from Hacker’s Creek Genealogical Library will join us with information and pictures of our area. We encourage everyone to bring in your own items of interest and pictures to show off.
“Eleanor Roosevelt said, ‘The purpose of life is to live it,’ and our members are doing that every day,” Said Director Dinah Mills. “They demand the opportunity to learn new skills, engage new people, and share their wisdom and knowledge. We serve them and this community the best we can with fun and engaging programs, while also providing practical tools and resources to help them stay healthy and independent.”
This year’s theme, Senior Centers: Building Momentum emphasizes the personal growth and momentum senior centers bring to their communities, including programming that empowers older adults to learn, give, and connect.
The Lewis County Senior Center provides benefits counseling, congregate meals, home delivered meals, volunteer opportunities, health screenings, transportation and a wide array of in home services.
