About the Center
Middletown Recreation today announced a new Seasonal Surprise Bags program for seniors. The Department is preparing the activity bags for distribution in August to members of the Middletown Senior Center. Read on...
Middletown Senior Center opened its doors in 1965, to serve the needs and interests of an older generation. Our goal to this day, is to provide programming for this dynamic generation of adults. The center provides a range of services, sense of community, support and purpose for our members. We strive to create a welcoming environment for all our members to enjoy.
Our programs range from a variety of trips, arts and crafts, painting classes, chorus group, bowling, billiards, knitting group, book club, games, Mahjong, Pinochle, weekly movies, a variety of fitness classes, including Tai Chi and Yoga. We also host bi-monthly birthday parties, seasonal events and so much more!
Research shows that older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental and over all well-being.
Membership to the Middletown Senior Center is free for residents age 60 and over and non-residents are also welcome to join. We encourage you to be open to new experiences, friendships and to join a place where activity and participation will improve your quality of life!
