The Andover Senior Center, located in the City Hall complex, conducts a variety of activities throughout the year. Most functions are open to all seniors, and memberships are available for a fee of $1.50. Meetings are held at noon on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, and the members provide refreshments. They celebrate birthdays with cake, ice cream, and coffee at the 1st meeting, and a full lunch is served at the 2nd meeting.
About the Facility
The senior center facility was completely renovated in 2002. The room is large and comfortable; there are plenty of tables and chairs for meetings, meals, and other gatherings, and the kitchen and restrooms are easily accessible. The room also contains a piano, an organ, a pool table, and a television. Some magazines and other senior publications are available at no cost.
