Senior Center

Our Mission
To provide an environment that promotes the independence of senior citizens. By offering direct services and programs adapted to their specialized and changing needs and interests.

For Men Over Fifty-Five
Men fifty-five and older are needed to participate in a slow-pitch softball game held at 9 a.m. each Friday morning at Cameron Park. This is not a league team and there are no fees involved, just a bunch of seniors that choose up sides and play a game for a little fun and exercise. So bring your mitt and come out.
