At the Leroy Rogers Senior Citizen Center, things are always happening! Our Center was built using grant money from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. Seniors Can Enjoy Food, Fun, and Fitness at the Leroy Rogers Senior Center which functions as a community gathering places for adults 55 and older and are the hub for senior services in the community. Seniors participate and enjoy daily planned programming activities such as exercise and dance classes, arts and crafts, table games, and day trip excursions. The center also hosts various guests who perform and entertain or speak about medical, financial, and consumer related issues important to seniors. In addition to the activities offered by the centers, senior clients are also provided hot, balanced lunches Monday through Friday.
Including the above activities, the Leroy Rogers Senior Center also offers an array of exercises classes to include a complete body workout chair exercise with a certified fitness instructor three days a week-Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9-10a.m. and a YOGA Class on Monday and Wednesday from 10:15-11:15a.m. and it’s FREE to Seniors 55 and older. We’ve also added a Line Dancing Class each Wednesday at 9am for a fee of $3 per class. And, from our Senior Café—for those who are not in the AAA program, we offer to the public a hot, balanced lunch; we ask that you call (229-391-3956) a day ahead to reserve your meal. Donations are accepted.
There is no cost to enroll but some day trips may have small fees. Transportation to and from the senior center may also be arranged through the Department of Human Services' Coordinated Transportation Program.
