CHARLES RIETDYKE SENIOR CENTER
The Charles Rietdyke Senior Center’s mission is to provide a central location where older adults can receive information and participate in programs and activities which are essential for promoting health, independence, and well being.
We are committed to doing our best to ensure that the Charles Rietdyke Senior Center is a safe and welcoming facility for seniors of all ages that wish to participate in our programming.
Since we do not provide the oversight and supervision of that offered at adult day facilities, our policy requires that those persons using our programs be physically and mentally able to do so independently or be accompanied by a companion to assist them.
Our priority is the safety and enjoyment of everyone using the Senior Center.
There is no fee to join the Wolcott Senior Center. Seniors must be 55 years of age. You DO NOT need to be a Wolcott resident to become a member–EVERYONE WELCOME.
Come join the fun, there is always something to do. A variety of daily activities and bus trips are available to keep you busy. There are also special monthly activities that change throughout the year.
Lunch is served daily with 24 hours notice. Cost is $3.00 (donation) per lunch. All seniors must be 60 years of age to be eligible for subsidized lunches through New Opportunities. New members must fill out eligibility forms at the Senior Center. As per the Health Department regulations, food items are not allowed to leave the premises.
