WHAT IS A SENIOR CITIZEN? – and who does the Center serve?
Contrary to the popular quip that a “senior citizen” is someone over 60 years of age who is waiting to get old enough to be a senior; a senior citizen is anyone who has reached his or her 60th birthday (at least once). Further, the definition does not include some level of financial status. Consequently, participating at or having lunch with friends at the center is not verification that we are in some way accepting welfare assistance or charity. Alone or as “empty nesters,” most of us would have to admit to “dining” on a peanut butter sandwich and calling it “lunch” at one time or another. One of the center’s primary purposes is to serve a healthy meal which meets the dietary needs we have as we reach our “golden” years. Come join us. Try it. You’ll like it!
