The Senior Citizens Council of Madison would like to invite residents of Madison County, 60 years and older, to take a tour of their 10,000 square-foot facility, and says if you haven’t seen the facility, “you will be amazed.”
Members of the facility have the opportunity to use the facilities Monday through Fridays, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The center has a library combined with a computer lab where computer classes are offered on every Tuesday from 2 until 4 p.m. The puzzle room is an attraction for the guys to socialize and drink coffee as they work on puzzles and the ladies’ craft room is a busy hub where beautiful dogs, pillowcases, quilting and lap robes are made and shared with the community. The fitness room is often in use throughout the day and has equipment that is of quality, durability and designed to be safe for seniors.
The center also has two multi-purpose rooms where one is used for training presentations, meetings, baby showers, small gatherings and other activities presented by the community. The other multi-purpose room has a pool and foosball tables for more socialization. The display case contains items made by the seniors and are for sale. The kitchen is spacious and designed with upgraded quality equipment. The kitchen is known for preparing nutritious meals that are prepared daily for Members who are home bound and unable to prepare meals due to their medical condition or disability. Meals are also provided to Members who attend the center for activities. The dining room is designed with brown and black banquet chairs, round tables and a buffet serving area. The eye catcher for this area is the fireplace. Each table is dressed with linen table clothes and a beautiful centerpiece.
The Senior Citizens Council of Madison Advisory Council would like to send our appreciation and gratitude to the County Commissioners, the City Council, the United Way Team and Madison County for all they have done for our agency.
The council is currently accepting donations for a Baby Grand piano for the Dining Hall. The hall is used for weddings, receptions, banquets, reunions, training, seminars and other gatherings. To make your reservation to tour, please call the Senior Center at (850) 973-4241, and visit us at the center, located at 1161 Harvey Greene Drive.
