Hello Everyone!

The month of May is a special time set aside to honor seniors. It is nationally known as
Older Americans Month; a time when we celebrate the contributions and lives of people like you. From the Ohio Department of Aging: “Now more than ever, older Ohioans are working longer, trying new things and engaging in their communities. They’re taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others.”

The success of the Germantown Senior Center is largely inpart to you and your commitment to our community. We honor you and appreciate all you do!
In honor of Older Americans Month, I challenge everyone to write a letter, send a card, or perform an act of service for an influential elder in your own life. Not only will this spark a radiation of kindness, but it will provide an opportunity to show reverent respect, and pure thankfulness to those who have helped mold us into the people we are today.

Happy Mother’s Day! Happy Memorial Day! Happy May!

To all my volunteers: Thank you greatly for all you do for me and the Senior Center!
Without your help, many of the activities we do wouldn’t be possible. I’d like to give a special thank you to Wanda and Bob Barker for all their hard work in organizing the Craft Fair. Also, to the many vendors and volunteers who helped and donated their time and talents. It was a huge success and wouldn’t have been possible without all of you. For our Volunteer Incentive Program, for the month of April, Gerry Ginter won the $25 first place gift card and Steve Faber won the $10 second place gift card. Stop by the center and collect your prize! Consider being a senior center volunteer! There are a variety of ways you can volunteer at the senior center. Whether it’s decorating, cooking, leading or helping with an activity, working rentals, etc., it’s all so helpful and rewarding.

Also, I’d like for us to give a BIG THANK YOU to all the people/organizations that have supported the Center over the past month:

Megan Butcher at Promedica– Thank you for sponsoring our Men & Women’s Breakfast and cooking as well!
Donald Cummings from Hillspring Home Health– Thank you for coming and giving a great presentation on the importance of balance! Also, for sponsoring donuts!
Paul Robinson at Kingston– Thank you for sponsoring prizes for our Bingo!
Brian Erisman at Lighthouse Electric– Thank you for sponsoring donuts!
Our AARP Income Tax Volunteers: Everett, Lynnette, Paul, and Jerry– Thank you for donating your time to help people with their income taxes!
Shannon and Ashley from the Germantown Library– Thank you for coming and sponsoring a craft for us!

About Us

In 1996, German Township Trustees and the Municipality of Germantown worked together to build a senior center. Nelda and Bob Judy donated the property and a levy was passed.
The grand opening of the center was on April 15, 2000. Today the center continues to be a vital connection between the seniors and their community.

Our Mission

We advocate the well-being and dignity of all seniors by providing health, educational and recreational programs to assist them to lead independent and useful lives.
Programs:

Health – Attend health seminars, health fairs, health screenings, and flu shot clinics. We also provide a Tues/Thurs congregate lunch program.

Educational – Attend classes or surf the internet in our computer lab. Listen to informational speakers on a myriad of topics.

Recreational – We have Euchre, Bridge, Bingo, Mah Jongg, Yoga, Chair Volleyball, Bible Study, specialty events, trips, outings for shopping and dining, theater, and museums. We also have a bus. We have many volunteer opportunities. The center is available for limited rentals as well.

Storm Water Friendly Watering Tips

  • Direct your downspouts to a depressed area or a garden bed so water soaks into the yard instead of rushing out into the streets.
  • Use rain barrels to store rainwater from downspouts
  • Do not over water. Excessive watering can lead to runoff, which wastes both water and chemicals you may have added to your lawn.
  • Incorporate swales and berms to your landscaping so runoff is contained and does not leave your yard.
