Senior Center offers fellowship, fun

by | Feb 13, 2020 | Uncategorized

If you’re a senior citizen looking to socialize, eat, and perhaps play some Bingo or 42, check out the Farmersville Senior Center.

Senior Center Social Director Cathy Strong says the center has weekly activities for everyone to enjoy.

If getting limber and perhaps burning a few calories is on your agenda, stop by every Monday and Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. and participate in chair exercises.

For those who like to eat with­out playing games or exercising, every second and fourth Thurs­day night of the month the Center hosts a Potluck Supper at 5 p.m. Bring a covered dish to share and $1 to cover supplies.

Games such as Bingo and 42 are also played by the local seniors at the Center.

Every Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon, the center offers Bingo. Do­nuts and coffee are served and, ac­cording to Strong, there are plenty of opportunities to win non-cash prizes.

“Bingo is the most popular,” she said. “About 15-16 people attend each week.”

Wednesday nights from 6 to 9 p.m., visitors to the Center can play 42 and enjoy a Pot Luck Supper. Bring a dish to share, and if game playing is not your thing, Strong says “anyone is welcome to stay and watch.”

The center is located at 209 Orange St. in Farmersville. Have questions or need information? Call Cathy Strong at 972-782-7989.
