These programs include but are not limited to: exercise classes, monthly group meetings, special events, escorted trips, art/craft activities and group card/board games. The facility contains several activity areas including a dining area that will accommodate about 200 people for special events. A 25-passenger Senior Center bus is also available to the seniors for day trips.

Meals on Wheels

Each meal complies with Dietary Guidelines for Americans and provides at least 33.3 % of the DRI for each meal. Frozen meals are available for weekends and holidays and shelf-stable meals are provided annually prior to the winter weather season to ensure each homebound client will have a meal in the event of inclement weather or other emergency situations when the regular meal cannot be delivered.  Meal delivery is coordinated through the  senior center  For specific delivery information, call the Three Rivers  Area Agency on Aging at 678-552-2838 or toll free at 1-866-854-5652.
