Mission Statement

"We believe that staying active is a key to physical and emotional well-being and that retirement is the time when it is most important to have activities which are interesting and enjoyable.  The Meridian Senior Center was created to serve as a township focal point where individuals or groups come together for service and activities which enrich their quality of life and enhance their worth as individuals.  The Center provides social, recreational and educational programs that offer opportunities to remain or become a vital and active part of the community."
