Hello members and friends! This time of year is a wonderful time of pure blessing, appreciation, reflection, and wonderful times spent with family & friends! I hope you all have a Happy Easter! This time of year also brings a lot of fun and laughter. Whether you're sharing jokes with your family or playing pranks on your neighbor, a merry heart does good like a medicine. So, do your part. Tell a joke, pull a prank, laugh a lot, and have some fun. Stay young my friends! April Fools! All jokes aside, there's a lot to do this month at the Center. Specifically, there's a few special announcements I'd like to mention.

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.
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.
- 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.
