Senior Services

Welcome to Tennessee’s first nationally accredited Senior Center. We invite you to participate in the Center’s activities. Our vision is to provide activities for today’s seniors to enjoy an Active Life through Active Living.

The center also serves as a resource for information on aging, training, professional leadership, volunteer leadership, and the development of new approaches to aging programs. The center plans activities and services that are designed to improve the physical, social, emotional, and educational quality of life.


EVENTS

2014 Fabulously Funny Tour - Jeanne Roberts

Senior Services will host two performances featuring dynamic speaker Jeanne Robertson at Memorial Park Community Center, 510 Bert St., on Nov. 11th and 12th. Southern Lady Magazine had this to say about Robertson: “There is just something about Jeanne Robertson. Maybe it’s her beauty queen-esque good looks. Or maybe it’s that she’s six-feet-two inches tall. Regardless of what it is, once you hear her speak, you’ll remember her – that is, if you can quit laughing long enough to catch your breath.

Tickets for each of the following performances are on sale now at the Senior Services Reception Area of MPCC:

Nov. 11, 6 p.m. - This performance will honor our nation’s veterans. Organizations may sponsor a table for $150. Individual tickets are $25.
Nov. 12, noon - Grab your BFF and come learn how Robertson says we can use laughter to better handle holiday stress. Individual tickets are $25.
