The Georgetown Senior Center provides a regular mid-day retreat for area seniors. The Center meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, September through June.
In the late morning, a Center-owned van transports our members from their homes to our meeting place. From 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., a skilled instructor leads seniors in light exercise and stretching. From 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., members enjoy a delicious home-cooked lunch, followed by an enrichment program (e.g., book talk, musical entertainment, current events discussion). The Center van takes the seniors home at 2:00 p.m.
The Center meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday from September through June at either St.John’s Episcopal Church in Georgetown or St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in upper NW, Washington, DC.
The Georgetown Senior Center is a private, nonprofit organization established to provide warmth, companionship, and intellectual stimulation to elderly residents of Georgetown and Upper, NW. Operations are handled by a dedicated cadre of volunteers who manage the regular calendar of meetings and activities. Many volunteers also serve on the organization’s Board of Directors.
The members often provide suggestions for enrichment programs as well as for periodic field trips. In addition, most seniors contribute financially, paying $6 for lunches and $4 for transportation for regular gatherings and applicable fees for field trips. However, financial arrangements are tailored to each member’s financial situation, and no one is turned away.
Funded wholly by donations, the Center is a Section 501(c)3 organization. It receives no government funds and is fully supported through tax deductible contributions from local businesses and generous citizens.
