We believe that staying active is a key to physical and emotional well-being for everyone, especially older adults. The Meridian Senior Center was created to provide a friendly, welcoming, atmosphere for persons age 55 and over to gather and engage in programs and social activities. The Senior Center works to provide relevant programs and services to meet the ever-changing lifestyle needs for older persons throughout the community.
Who is eligible to participate in center activities? Anyone 55 or older may participate in center activities without cost, except where fees are specifically noted. We do have an optional supporting membership annual fee, which provides support for the on-going operation of the center. Our supporting members are entitled to our bi-monthly newsletter and reduced fees on certain programs and exercise classes. Those interested in supporting membership may sign up any time during operating hours. I do not want to, or am unable to drive. How can I receive transportation to your center? If you are unable to drive, or do not wish to; bus transportation is available to and from the center through the capital area transportation authority. You may call their office at (517)394-2282

If you are age 59 and under, there is a charge of $5.75 (this is not a suggested donation) The lunches are provided through the Tri-County Office on Aging.
