Hello members and friends!
The breeze is turning warmer, the days are growing longer, the birds are beginning to sing, and thankfully; March welcomes back spring! If you're tired of being "couped up" by cold weather, and suffering from cabin fever, then spring on in to the Senior Center and enjoy the activities we have planned for this month. Here are some of the "extra" opportunities to take advantage of:
*AARP is providing Income Tax appointments at the Center on Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 am-12:30 pm. Our volunteers are trained and IRS-certified. This service is free of charge. Please call me to schedule your appointment as they are filling up fast.
*Our new Thursday Game Day is going great! Come and join in on all the fun!
*Senior Center Spirit Day is on Mar. 17th for St. Patrick’s Day. Wear something green and since the Irish are known to have good manners and regularly say “please” and “thank you”, let’s make it a priority to do the same. If you’re coming to the Lunch & Craft, it will be Irish themed. Please sign up!
*The Germantown Senior Center is having a Craft Fair on Sat., March 18th from 9 am-4 pm. Baked Goods, Coffee, & Lunch will be available for purchase. There will also be raffles. For information on table rental, please call Wanda at (813) 416-3763. Come support local small businesses!
First Day of Spring
*We are celebrating the first day of spring on Mon., March 20th, with a free Ice Cream Bar Drive-thru.
Pull up at the back of the building from 1-3 pm and we will bring you your ice cream bar or feel free to come in and enjoy it!
Lunch & Shopping
*We’re taking the senior bus and going to downtown Miamisburg for lunch at Bennett’s at 11 am & shopping the downtown stores. Last pick-up at the center will be 10:45am. You have to RSVP! Bus Limit is 14!
Thank you so much for all you do for me and the Senior Center! I'm thankful for each one of you! In continuing with our Volunteer Incentive Program, for the month of February, Wanda Barker won the $25 first place gift card and Frankie Ginter won the $10 second place gift card. Stop by the center and collect your prize!
There are a variety of ways you can volunteer at the senior center. Whether it’s decorating, cooking, leading or helping with an activity, landscaping, etc., it’s all so helpful and rewarding. Consider being a volunteer today!

In 1996, German Township Trustees and the Municipality of Germantown worked together to build a senior center. Nelda and Bob Judy donated the property and a levy was passed.
The grand opening of the center was on April 15, 2000. Today the center continues to be a vital connection between the seniors and their community.
We advocate the well-being and dignity of all seniors by providing health, educational and recreational programs to assist them to lead independent and useful lives.
- Health - Attend health seminars, health fairs, health screenings, and flu shot clinics. We also provide a Tues/Thurs congregate lunch program.
- Educational - Attend classes or surf the internet in our computer lab. Listen to informational speakers on a myriad of topics.
- Recreational - We have Euchre, Bridge, Bingo, Mah Jongg, Yoga, Chair Volleyball, Bible Study, specialty events, trips, outings for shopping and dining, theater, and museums. We also have a bus. We have many volunteer opportunities. The center is available for limited rentals as well.
