Senior Center membership renewal now open for 2017

From Anderson Twp

Anderson Township Seniors: It’s time to renew your Anderson Township Senior Center membership for 2017.

Anderson Township waived the membership fee for the last six months of 2016 to encourage seniors to revisit the center and to build up membership. Continued membership allows you to enjoy the many activities and services the senior center has to offer.

Membership forms can be found online here or at the center’s information desk. Dues for 2017 membership are as follows:
RESIDENT: $30 single, $45 per couple
NON-RESIDENT: $40 single, $65 per couple
Make checks out to Anderson Township Senior Center

Fees are somewhat higher than last year. “The slight increase in membership cost will allow us to better serve you and continue to make improvements and increase the quality of the center as well as offset operating costs of the center,” said Township Administrator Vicky Earhart.

Membership benefits include a bi-monthly newsletter mailed to your home, numerous classes and programs, weekday congregate lunches and transportation services. Since the changes in July, membership has been increasing, along with participation in events.

Celebrate the season with Anderson's annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration

Save the date this holiday season for an evening of community fun and holiday magic at the 13th annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration.

The Saturday, Dec. 3, event is hosted around the clock tower and holiday tree at Anderson Towne Center, with nearby businesses participating in activities and giveaways.

The celebration begins at 4 p.m., with Santa arriving at 4:15 p.m. on his fire engine “chariot.” Outdoor live entertainment continues until 6 p.m. when the tree is lit.

Free horse-drawn wagon rides are part of the fun, and children also enjoy the craft-cookie decorating area. Other events include wood carving and ice sculpting demonstrations. Whatever the weather, you’ll enjoy indoor and outdoor activities, including the Holiday Passport, which can be exchanged for a gift bag and entry for raffle prizes after six visits to participating Towne Center businesses.

Anderson Towne Center is at 7500 Beechmont Avenue in Anderson Township.
