About George A. Puckett Senior Citizens Center

The George Puckett Nutrition and Senior Center opened March 2003 and employs seven personnel. It is a lovely 6000 sq ft facility located, on the edge of the pond, in the beautiful city park. The Center is open from 11:00am to 12:30pm Monday through Friday for lunch and other activities. Lunch is served at 11:30am and the cost is minimal. We serve approximately 150 seniors in the dining room and on the homebound route daily.

Senior citizens are invited to come in at 11:00am to play dominos, cards, work puzzles or just sit and visit with their neighbors. Wednesday we gather around the piano for gospel singing. Each week a health care provider is in house to perform blood pressure screenings and glucose checks. They also provide seniors with information on health issues.

Every Thursday we play bingo from 11:00 – 11:30 sponsored by local businesses or home health agencies. On the last Friday of each month, we have a birthday and anniversary celebration during lunch and cake and ice cream is served, recognizing the birthdays and anniversaries that have taken place during that month.

Annually, many other activities take place at the center, including a Halloween Bash and Veteran’s day program.

We extend to you, a warm welcome to the Nutrition and Senior Center.
Please come join us.
