SUPPORTING MEMBER DRIVE –  

Since starting the Supporting Member Discount Card last year, we have enrolled over 300 Supporters. The cost of the Card is $30 each, or $55 per Household. It entitles you to discounted classes at the Senior Center, reduced rates for travel through the Senior Center, and discounts at local merchants. The 2018-19 Membership Drive begins on July 1. 

For the Supporting Member Discount Card Drive to be a success, we need your help and will reward you for referring a friend or family member to purchase our Supporting Member Cards. Our goal is to sell 500 cards by August 1. With your help, I am sure we can make it.  For each card sold, you can enter a drawing to win a $25 gift certificate, which we will pull a winner on the following Mondays:  July 16, July 30, and August 13. Thank you for your support, and let’s get shopping!


  HISTORY OF THE CENTER:

The Phoenixville Area Senior Center was founded in 1978. The First Presbyterian Church on Main Street rented space to the senior center for its program for 10 years. There it offered a daily luncheon and a few programs for adults over the age of 60. Space was limited and as membership grew, it became necessary to search for a larger facility.

In May of 1986, an opportunity arose to purchase and renovate the Sacred Heart Social Center, a historic building ideal for a senior center. The building was conveniently located near the downtown business district and nearby residential area. Major renovations were needed both to the outside and the inside of the building. After the first phase of the renovations was completed, community volunteers helped to move the center from the First Presbyterian Church to our new building on Church Street. An Open House was held on October 30, 1988, to celebrate the opening of the new center and to allow everyone in the community to visit.

With the new facility, the center was able to increase its programming for seniors. Today, the center welcomes a culturally diverse group of people who spend time at the center involved in a variety of activities. The center now offers exercise classes, art classes, computer classes, a Tech support group, and Wii bowling. Our trip program is very popular for those who like to travel. Breakfast is offered three days a week and lunch is available five days a week. Seniors also enjoy a variety of social events and celebrations.

The Phoenixville Area Senior Center continues its tradition to serve, support and enhance the lives of all senior citizens, by providing programs and activities designed to promote active, independent, healthy lifestyles.
