A small but mighty band of senior citizens had a dream of having a building where they could meet, have parties, enjoy meals together, hold educational seminars, and serve other of Pickerington and Violet Township. Today, that dream is a reality far beyond the hopes of that first group.
As Pickerington has grown, so has the Senior Center. Today, there are activities for a variety of interests. There are several exercise classes including a weekly strength class. There are dance classes including clogging, line dancing and western square dance. Educational seminars are held frequently on topics related to health care, financial planning and legal issues for seniors. Card parties, fellowship dinners, Bingo games, crafts and quilting are some of the activities going on weekly. The Senior Center sponsors trips all around the world, and a wide variety of local day trips.
The Pickerington Senior Center is unique among senior centers in the manner with which it is funded. It receives grants from various governmental bodies, including the Violet Township Trustees, but the majority of its budget is gained through fundraising done by the members of the Senior Center. It is governed by a Board of Trustees whom operate under a Constitution. Most of the work of maintaining the building/grounds and fundraising is performed by the members themselves.
Membership in the Senior Center is open to anyone 50 years of age or older. That fee gives members use of the senior center building, a monthly newsletter and access to a number of programs and activities, including lifeline screenings, health seminars, flu shots and educational workshops.
