About George A. Puckett Senior Citizens Center
The George Puckett Nutrition and Senior Center opened March 2003 and employs six 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 8am to 2pm Monday through Friday for lunch and other activities. Lunch is served at 11:30am and the cost is minimal. We serve approximately 100 seniors in the dining room and 100 homebound clients daily.
Senior citizens are invited to come in at 8am to play dominos, cards, work puzzles or just sit and visit with their neighbors. Thursdays 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 12:30 to 1:00 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. The second Tuesday of every month is the Bunch-Singleton Domino tournament at 9am. Prizes for first and second place are awarded.
Annually, many other activities take place at the center, including a Halloween Bash, fishing tournament and Veteran’s day program.
We extend to you, a warm welcome to the Nutrition and Senior Center.
Please come join us.
Senior Citizens and Nutrition Center Director:
In March, 2020, our state and federal funding partners requested the nutrition program to immediately close the nutrition center for in-person dining and begin offering meals by “drive thru” service.
The dining room remains closed as a public health safety measure, and drive thru meals continue to be served.
One meal per day (lunch) is offered to persons over 60 years of age.
Every person receiving a meal must complete the enrollment/registration process and reserve their meal daily.
If you are over 60 years of age and would like to receive a meal in the drive thru, please contact the nutrition center director Donna Riley at 580 584 9379.
Meals are provided to eligible participants Monday through Friday beginning at 10:00 AM and ending promptly at NOON.
Home deliveries of meals are also provided to senior citizens who meet certain eligibility qualifications. Persons qualifying for home delivered meals are over 60 years of age and unable to leave their home without the assistance of another individual.
If you are interested in receiving a meal delivery to your home, please contact the nutrition center director Donna Riley at 580 584 9379.
