What My Center Means To Me
As a volunteer of the Washington Senior Citizens Center, I am proud to testify that the center provides quality, "much needed" services to the elderly in our local community. Their activities are diversified, interesting, and entertaining to meet the needs of various types of people.
The daily lunch program offers seniors Age 60 and older a healthy meal at a reasonable cost. A minimum donation of $2.00 is acceptable. Quality of the food is excellent and this provides a daily period of socialization to all in attendance.
Flea markets are held in the spring and fall with the help of dedicated volunteers. There are bargains for everyone along with it being a fun, sociable event for all in attendance.
Educational programming includes computer classes and "by donation only" annual tax preparation for the public.
Additional activities include card parties and annual summer picnics, Christmas parties, and a fundraiser dinner/show usually held in April.
I am anxious to become eligible for membership in the Washington Senior Center once I reach the age of 60. Everyone who is eligible, age 60 and older, should become involved in this organization. Services provided by the Center fill a great need in this community to keep senior citizens active and sociable.
Hats off to the staff and volunteers of the Washington Senior Citizens Center!
