"Everyone is welcome at the senior center. It's especially important for younger people to know the senior center exists and what they do.
"The social part and meals -- these programs help get seniors out of their apartments where they can have some fun and see their friends. A lot don't know what the center is -- it's not a place for people to come and live, it's a place for social activities. It's also a place where seniors organize themselves to give back to the community."
