Services offered occasionally for seniors include Matter of Balance, blood pressure checks, picnics, monthly newsletters, shopping, guest speakers, tax counseling, nutrition information, senior fitness and transportation.
There is so much going on with our Senior Lifestyles Program that we just can't list everything. More information on activities, educational classes and services can be found in the Senior Newspaper and the Mansfield Activities Center Recreation Guide.
Want To Volunteer?
Volunteers play a vital part in the success of the senior activities. There is truly something for everyone. We need volunteers to serve on committees, serve and clean up the daily lunch program, teach classes, count daily lunch money, work the senior front desk as a greeter and the list goes on and on.
Enhance your resume and have fun while doing it. All volunteers are asked to record their time on forms in the volunteer box. Part of the funding for the meal program is based on volunteer hours logged for the center. Your work is greatly appreciated. We couldn't do it without you. We need you!
