The Tuscarawas County Senior Center has been gaining more momentum these last 6-8
months with an increase in membership, more daily lunch visitors to both our congregate meal and our café, and we are seeing more participation in our weekly presentations. This is exciting to us as we see more new faces daily enjoying our programs and services. We are here for YOU, our 50 North population. If you haven’t checked us out yet, what are you
2023 will bring us some EXCITING changes in our calendar of events and in our facility.
After lengthy conversations, the Board of Directors have approved moving forward with renovations to the current café. We have received partial funding from Area Agency on Aging, Inc., VFW #1445, and the Kimble Family Foundation to support a full renovation including a name change. We have additional funding requests pending to support the final phases of this renovation however, no levy funds will be utilized to support this project. The café’s last day of operation will be March 30.
We are tentatively planning our grand opening in May, 2023 of PROSPECT PERKS, COFFEE & CAFÉ. We will be continuing our daily café specials but with a new menu as well as a coffee shop that you can get coffee to go, enjoy a cup of java with your friends or a fancy latte while you enjoy a book from our Library. Additionally, we will offer Grab & Go salads, sandwiches, veggie plates as well as homemade desserts daily. Hours of operation are still being determined.
