What is the definition of “senior” at Granville County Senior Services?
Do you have to be a resident of Granville County to participate in the activities and/or programs offered by Senior Services?
Can anyone “under 60” participate in any of the programs and activities?
Senior Services offer a wide variety of programs for older adults in Granville County. Certain services are funded through Title III of the Older American’s Act and are only for those over 60 including transportation, in-home aide services, congregate and home-delivered meals, and home improvement services. However, other activity programs we sponsor such as craft classes, support groups, fitness programs, recreational day trips, line dancing, etc. are open to any Granville County resident who is at least 50 years of age on a “space available” basis. This means if you are at least 50 years of age and see a program in which you would like to participate, give us a call. We must accommodate the 60+ population first but will invite the 50+ group to participate when there is extra space.
Can anyone “under 60” participate in the meals at the Center?
How do I know about upcoming events at the Center(s)?
A monthly newsletter lists the regularly scheduled programs and activities for each Senior Center and any special events that may occur during the month. The newsletter and special upcoming events are posted at www.granvillecounty.org/SeniorNewsletter. A limited number of newsletters are available for mailing by contacting the Granville County Senior Center at (919) 693-1930 to be added to the mailing list or you can pick up a newsletter at any of our three Senior Centers. A schedule of events is also posted weekly in the Oxford Ledger and the Butner-Creedmoor News.
