The Evans Senior Center - since 1981
Helping seniors remain in their own homes through active participation, socialization, recreation and nutrition in the community."
Our focus has remained the same and our nutrition program that started us off through the Erie County Senior Services Department is still going strong twenty-four years later, five days a week. Programs have been more health and fitness related at the Center. Line dancing, strength, stamina, and stay fit exercise have replaced aerobics and square dancing but the outcome has endured. We have a happy, healthy, and energetic group of seniors.
Our seniors have remained the backbone of the community. Many of them not only have their names etched in the charters of the organizations of our town, but also remain active through volunteer opportunities that ensure the community groups and organizations sheer existence.
