Senior Center

The Gardner Council on Aging's mission consists of three core responsibilities. One is to identify the needs of the community's elderly population and to know the resources that are available. Second is to educate the community at large in the needs of seniors. Last is to design, promote and implement needed services for the elderly and to coordinate with existing services for the elderly.

​COA Wish List

We are always in need of candy (soft individually wrapped chocolates in particular) to share with our members and guests. We also have a need for yarn and knitting/crochet patterns. If you would like to make a monetary donation in honor/memory of someone, please make checks payable to Gardner COA. Thank you.

WHAT DOES “SWIPE YOUR CARD” MEAN?


The Gardner Senior Center utilizes a computer program called “MY SENIOR CENTER” and this enables us to know how many people make use of the center. By registering as a member (NO FEE INVOLVED) you receive a scan card which enables you to sign in on our computer monitor. Swiping your card is not mandatory, but if you choose to, the senior center may gain some additional funds/grants based on how many feet walk through the doors. If you would like to receive a scan card, see Celeste or Claude in the first floor office. Please note that no information you provide is ever shared with anyone.
