New Year’s Eve Party

Celebrate with us. Entertainment by Casey MacGill. He rings in the New Year by performing 30s & 40s tunes with sing-a-longs. Wear your party clothes, throw confetti, use the noise makers, and share a toast to welcome 2016. Fun times. 

All the staff thank you for a fantastic 2015 and we know 2016 will be the best year yet for our Center. We hope you all have a Holiday Season that is perfect for you and brings you happiness and joy. Our best wishes to you all.


Membership dues for 2016 are $50 for the year and are available to purchase now. Membership is a good deal. Members receive reduced fees for foot care, trips, many classes, as well as invitations to the member’s only luncheon and other benefits. Members receive coupons which provide some additional savings. We don’t want fees to be a burden so we offer three payment plans.

1) Make one payment of $50.
2) Make two payments of $25. (1st payment by 1/31/2016, 2nd payment by 6/30/2016)
3) Make four payments of $12.50. (1st payment by 1/31/2016, 2nd payment by 4/3/2016, 3rd payment by 6/30/2016, 4th payment by 9/30/2016)

Paying someone’s membership is a nice Holiday gift for you or a friend. We also accept donations to help pay dues for those who cannot afford them. You do not have to be a member to participate at the Center.

Year End Donations

The year end request for tax deductible donations to participants and the community should be in your hands. It is extremely important that people be as generous as their situation allows. Think how important the center is to you and how vital to so many. As Mitch Albolm said in Tuesdays with Morrie, “Embrace aging.” Our programs and services enhance the aging journey and support, improve, and change lives for the better.

“What would I do without you guys?”
“I have something to look forward to, to get me up in the morning.”
“I’m happier. I’m healthier because of the Center.”

These are several of the comments we saw in the latest surveys. This is a great place for family, friends, and the community to target their year end donations that support your center. We hope you find us worthy of your support.
