Senior Spirit: 6/13
Are you a senior aged 55 or older, newly retired, new to our area or just looking for new friendships and opportunities to learn something new?
There is something for everyone at the Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center.
The mission of the Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center is to provide a place for older adults to gather for social, educational and recreational activities and to alleviate isolation and loneliness among the elderly.
Over 80 programs and events are currently offered in Arts & Crafts, Drama & Music, Recreation, Education, Wellness, Socials, Special Events and Community Services.
Membership is just $20 per year for adults 55 and older.
The very active center is the heartbeat of the city.
It is embraced by our community’s service clubs, volunteer groups, businesses, churches, schools and families.
Many activities are offered for all ages such as; the Thursday fundraiser lunch and music jam for just $5, the monthly concerts, monthly karaoke, volunteer opportunities and all special events.
The most current volunteer community project is the creation of a Senior Serenity Park.
The space has been cleared and the layout of the park will soon begin.
The park will include; beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees, a water feature, a pergola, benches, a picnic table, a raised herb garden and more.
All projects, supplies and services have been pledged and donated by the Mt. Juliet businesses, churches, service clubs and volunteers.
All contributors will be recognized on a permanent thank you board in the park.
If you would like to be a part of the, “Let’s build a park” committee call us today.
Stop by the center any day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Join us for a cup of coffee, a tour and a free newsletter.
