Center in the City
A bi-monthly Saturday afternoon program that runs from April thru November.
The center is open from 10 - 4 and offers a small menu of items to purchase such
as a sandwich, salad, or dessert. Chips, candy, and pop are also available. A
cappunico machine will be available soon. Many activates are available - Movie,
puzzles, bingo, Wii, board games, and WiFi.
Time and Manpower
6 hours a Saturday, utilizing an average of 6 volunteers per event.
Flyers, newspaper ads, improvements to the center, and a street sign
We are trying to reach the younger older adult in the community and at this
time we are serving our current population, but with improvements in
advertising, we are expecting to reach out to our target audience.
The program is self sufficient and costs have been covered from sale of the
food and bingo proceeds
Impact On Center
The Center in the city program has offered seniors an option to get out of
the house during the weekend and if they have never come to the center before,
this is a way to introduce them to our programs.
A good volunteer staff is important.
