Senior Center Opening Scheduled


Concord, NH – People aged 50 to 100 or more who are looking to live life to the fullest will soon have a new place to do so.

The Centennial Senior Center will celebrate its official grand opening at 254 N. State Street in the Smokestack Center on Wednesday, April 24th at 11 a.m.  Senior citizens, administrators, state and local officials, representatives of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce and the general public are invited to share in refreshments and a great sense of accomplishment at the new location. April 24th’s events begin with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by tours. All are invited.

Offering daily wellness activities, ongoing classes and periodic educational forums, the senior center’s traditional and non-traditional activities will be  designed to improve physical, emotional, social, spiritual, occupational and financial health.

The 4,400-square-foot space all on one level, includes offices, classrooms, a welcoming sitting area with a fireplace, a large meeting space and nearly two dozen parking spaces, making it very accessible and flexible.

“The new senior center is a cornerstone initiative of efforts to expand programming and grow as an organization in order to provide active, mature adults with meaningful opportunities for engagement, and healthy aging,” said Centennial Senior Center Executive Director Vivien F. Green. “To be this close to completion on what will be a much-needed resource in the community is so exciting. We’re looking forward to opening our doors and inviting in not only seniors, but other organizations that assist people as they age. This will be a true community endeavor.”
