Penacook Community Center

SENIOR PROGRAMS

At PCC, our older adult members are active! We enjoy meals together, a chance to be physically active, there are learning opportunities and a variety of outings and fun activities. Most importantly, it’s a place to see friends – new and old – and connect with a supportive community. Cost is just $45 per year for adults 55+ – and members 90+ are free.

One of our most popular offerings is our Lunch and Learn Program. Each week, in conjunction with the Merrimack County Community Action Program, the seniors are served a nutritious meal and then partake in an educational presentation.

Our seniors also spend time with the PCC youth community through Intergenerational Programs such as our Story-Art Hour and award-winning Bingo Buddy. Click here to learn more about our Intergenerational Programs.

“The Tai Ji Quan for Seniors class has helped me most with balance and being steady on my feet. I have also enjoyed the socialization aspect of the class. It has been wonderful learning with people my own age, who like me, are not in perfect health or condition. We have a lot of fun and plenty of laughs.”

– Audrey S., Senior Program Member

Do you know about the NH Association of Senior Centers? 

What is a Senior Center?
Programs and activities vary between centers. All programs serve senior citizens needs for social interaction, intellectual stimulation, emotional enhancement, programs and activities for seniors to help to improve and maintain their physical condition, wellness, and overall quality of life. Most centers are run by local governments like a city or country, in cooperation with departments, senior services and area agencies on aging. There are many non profit Senior Centers as well. Senior Centers offer a variety of programs and services to help senior citizens maintain their independence and vitality and provide a place for seniors to have the opportunity to meet other seniors through social interaction.
