Take a sneak peek into the William G. Long Senior Center at 223 Arnold Mill Road and you are sure to find a group of individuals that are embracing life. Perhaps this group of individuals should be considered honored citizens. In Portland, Oregon even mass transportation refers to those in the 65+ range as honored citizens. After all, with all that Ms. Delia Halverson shared in the September Townelaker that this group of individuals accomplishes, contributes to, and completes, they should be honored.
With coordinated activities, the participants of the William G. Long Senior Center are able to participate in social activities and lifelong learning skills courses to keep them active and engaged. The Center’s website and newsletter boasts of opportunities for card playing, bunko, cooking, workshops, and more.
Members looking to step outside the four walls of the building to spead their horizons have many opportunities with outings to the zoo, a Braves game, lunches, and many other options. Additionally, there are several ways in which the members of the senior center in Woodstock give back to the community.
One of these ways includes a partnership with MUST Ministries. Donations are accepted at the community center. Volunteers then transport the collected donations of food and clothing and take them to the MUST Ministries center in Canton.
