Senior Enrichment Center
It is the goal of the Spring Lake Senior Enrichment center to create an atmosphere that acknowledges the value of human life, individually and collectively, and affirms the dignity and self-worth of senior adults. Its philosophy is based on the premises that aging is a normal developmental process; that human beings need peers with whom they can interact and who are available as a source of encouragement and support and that adults have the right to have voice in determining matters in which they have a vital interest.
"Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born. "
~Dale E. Turner
The Center is located in facility adjacent to the Multipurpose Community Center down the street from Town Hall. The center is funded by the Town of Spring Lake, Mid-Carolina Area on Aging and the North Carolina General Assembly. The Center is open daily from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm and on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm until 10:00 pm. It is occasionally open at other times for special events and some night classes.
