Older Americans Month: Fun May Activities at the Senior Center in Central Park! 

Every May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month (OAM). The 2024 theme is “Powered by Connection,” which recognizes the profound impact that meaningful relationships and social connections have on the health and well-being of communities. The Senior Center plays a vital role in supporting independence and aging in place through connection, combating isolation, providing recreational and educational opportunities, nutrition, and critical social services such as transportation and care management.

The Senior Center in Central Park offers a broad spectrum of programming and direct services to older adults in our community.  Active programming includes classes, social clubs, special events, and drop-in opportunities.  Recreational programs include fitness, music, dance, art, movie days, chess club, bridge lessons, quilting, and more!
