28 July 2015: An exciting, new home for the Senior Center!  After evaluating many potential locations, the Centre Region Parks & Recreation Authority has finalized the details for the new home for the Senior Center inside the Nittany Mall, near the Sears store. Our thanks to the Nittany Mall for welcoming this transition. 

A temporary 4,000 square foot space will be open there starting Sept. 1, then Architect Alan Popovich will begin meeting with seniors and staff for input on outfitting the new, permanent, 7,075 square foot home at the mall, also near Sears.  If you have a question about the move, please ask us!  We are happy to chat about this exciting event!  Please also read the May 2015 news release (PDF) about the relocation.
