Senior Citizens Center

Senior CenterThe Shirley J Luck Senior Center is a multiple service center designed to meet the needs of adults. The building is home to the “Fifty-Plus Club” with weekly programs every Thursday for all to enjoy. Fulton County Office for Aging offers a noontime meal in the building every weekday and guests share dinner every fourth Thursday of each month. Dinner is occasionally accompanied by entertainment or informative programs. We also offer approximately 15 trips a year (some day and some two or three day). Our mission is to promote good health and an active lifestyle for the well being of today’s adults and do so by providing a safe environment for members and guests to mingle.

Michelle Jones, Center Director states “Together with the staff here at the Senior Center, our focus is what is of interest to Senior Citizens. We provide educational programs to help today’s seniors know and understand all of their options in these ever changing times. We also host seasonal specials, traditional repeats because members want them back and are constantly looking for what’s new and interesting to Senior Citizens.”

Did You Know?

There is a group of 50 Plus Club members who meet weekly on Friday mornings at 11:00 am to walk for some exercise. They meet at the Johnstown Mall (Price Chopper) on days when the weather is inclement and on nice sunny, warm days they meet at the gazebo behind Bear Muffler on Perry Street in Johnstown. After a leisurely walk and some great conversation, they meet for lunch for more relaxing, easy going time spent together. If anyone who wishes to join them, please do, call the center for specific details.

Also be sure to check out our monthly newsletter “The Eavesdropper” sponsored by the City Of Johnstown!

The Center also houses a sheltered setting for frailer adults through an adult day care program. Guests are welcome to visit or make referrals through central assessment for someone who may need a more structured setting. Please contact the Senior Center for more information on the adult day care program.

The center is located at 109 East Main, Johnstown and opens daily 8am to 4pm and Thursdays until 5pm. Programs may be viewed in the center’s monthly newsletter “The Eavesdropper” or by calling 762-4643.
