Senior Enrichment Center

  
September 2021:
We are requiring masks and have somewhat limited occupancy in certain areas, and importantly….social distancing in all areas, while inside.
This is a great time of year to take advantage of the walking trail.
There will be no food or drinks available, but you may bring your own drink (try and have a lid to avoid spills)
Our drinking fountain is not available at this time.
Drop in hours are now Monday-Thursday, between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Fridays are 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
We do ask that you try not to enter through the Recreation doors due to COVID.
(
They have protocols for anyone entering over there, and then we will have to duplicate the process upon entrance to the center.)

Instead of going through the double glass doors, just take a left up the sidewalk that leads to the solid blue door in the corner of the building.
It used to just be an EXIT, but due to COVID it is now used as an entrance.

Thank you so much for your patience.
We are excited to begin again.
**Activities that require a larger gathering will resume as soon as participation proves favorable, such as BINGO and POKENO.

Stay tuned for updates to scheduling.
               There are no congregate meals at this time.
Meals on Wheels home deliveries will continue for current clients only.
No new registrations are available at this time.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Spring Lake Senior Center is located in a building directly across from the Town Hall on Ruth Street, and is attached to the Recreation and Parks Building.

(If you need directions to the center, click here.)
When the page with the map appears, enter your current location where the cursor is.

The map defaults to Town Hall.

The Senior Center is just across the street.

The Spring Lake Senior Center relies on funding from the Town of Spring Lake,  the Mid-Carolina Area Agency on Aging,  and the North Carolina General Assembly.


 The Senior Center follows the same holiday schedule as the Town and it’s offices. 



In the event of closures or early releases due to inclement weather, information will be posted on the home page on here, and on Facebook under Town of Spring Lake, and via the Town’s free  “app”  for your phones titled “I Love Spring Lake” that you can download through the Google Play Store.  We also try hard to report to the local news stations.


No appointment is needed:
You don’t need an appointment to stop in and meet us.

Just drop in any time and check out some of the great things we have going on, and if you would like to join us,

The calendar gives you the chance to plan when you can participate based on YOUR SCHEDULE.


LET US HELP YOU

We constantly strive to live up to our motto, “You’re never too old to have the best day of your life.” In order to do this, we don’t just view you as another customer or visitor. Instead, you are a part of the family. And here in Spring Lake, we believe in family.

In addition to the multitude of social activities we offer at the Senior Center, we also offer an array of services that cater to the well-being, health and safety of our aging population.

A few of these services include :
– congregate meals (must apply) if you are over age 60 and live in Spring Lake (Program ran by Meals on Wheels or CCCOOA) 910-484-0111
– health screenings on the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30a.m. ( a representative from Better Health is on-site)
– access to other social and human resource agencies
– information about services
– assistance as needed

One of our goals at the Spring Lake Senior Enrichment Center is to enhance the lives of those we work with. When we say, “join the community” we mean you become part of a group that is committed to helping each other out. It is a support network, a social network, a resource, a place to learn and feel comfortable.
