The Arab Senior Center is a 17,000 square foot facility that provides activities and learning experiences for our most respected and valued senior citizens.

In addition to the ballroom, the center sports the following specialty areas: quilting, ceramics, billiards, exercise, computer, and game rooms, along with a complete commercial kitchen and a library/reading room.
The Arab Senior Center and its various programs provide a safe, clean and enjoyable place for fellowship for senior members of our community. The Center offers a friendly fun atmosphere where our seniors enjoy a hot lunch, line dancing lessons, exercise, and gospel singing on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We celebrate birthdays of members one day each month. Other activities include, Bingo with prizes, board & card games, movies with popcorn shuffleboard, special speakers and entertainment, health checks, quilting, exercise equipment, computers, and much more.
Besides these activities, the center offers assistance in many ways such as reading complex mail or documents, assisting in grocery shopping, plus making and keeping appointments for the hair dresser, doctor, etc. as long as these places are inside the city limits.
Access to these activities and services is accommodated through our bus transportation for members who are unable to drive. Participants are brought to the site in the morning and are returned home each afternoon.
