One place where you will find your tax dollars hard at work is at the many wonderful senior centers that the Washington Metropolitan Area has to offer. These centers provide a boost to the health of our senior community by offering a full menu of classes and activities that keep them mentally and physically engaged. Perhaps even more important is the role the centers play in easing the social isolation that so often plagues the elderly. For many seniors, the centers have been a cure for loneliness and a spot where new friendships have flourished.
Montgomery CountyMontgomery County has six senior centers, serving adults 55 and over. All of the centers serve lunch each day; reservations are required. The cost of the lunch varies by location; people under 60 are asked to pay the full cost, and people over 60 are asked to make a voluntary contribution.
