Being active and engaged are key elements to physical and emotional well being for everyone, but as you enter retirement years, it is essential to have those connections. The Meridian Senior Center (with over 560 members) is a great place to join with other older adults of all ages to remain active and healthy.
There Meridian Senior Center believes that staying active is a key to physical and emotional well-being for everyone, especially older adults. The Senior Center was created to provide a friendly, welcoming, atmosphere for persons age 55 and over to gather and engage in programs and social activities. The Senior Center works to provide relevant programs and services to meet the ever-changing lifestyle needs for older persons throughout the community.
A nutritious lunchtime meal is served Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are age 60 or older, there is a suggested donation of $3.00 If you are age 59 and under, there is a charge of $5.75 (this is not a suggested donation). The lunches are provided through the Tri-County Office of Aging.
