Senior Citizens Affairs

Foundation up and runningBesides a fabulous hot lunch five days a week, the Pine Senior Center has activities throughout the week for all to join. Located at the Community Center in Pine, the Senior Dining Hall is a hub of activity.

Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m. the Senior Dining Hall serves a delicious and nutritious hot lunch for $5 for members. The same lunch can be delivered via Meals on Wheels to your door if needed.

Need to get out more and looking for a chance to visit with new friends?

On Mondays at 1 p.m., come out to play the game of Mahjong.

Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 a.m. is when senior fitness exercises take place.

On Wednesdays at 1 p.m. they play bridge.

There are also monthly art parties and bingo games.

Guests are welcome. Membership is $10 per year for those of us 50 years and older.

All of this is possible because of the dedicated volunteers who run the Pine-Strawberry Thrift Store and Senior Dining Hall.

If you have a bit of free time and can volunteer, SCAF is always happy to have more help.
