This year the Jenkins Township Seniors Citizen organization is celebrating its 37th year of operation. The group was formed by citizens of Jenkins Township who were interested in events in the township and how senior citizens could participate in many of these events.
However, over the years, the numbers have gone down drastically due to the loss of many members. Therefore, a membership drive is taking place to get enrollment up.
The objective of the organization is to provide a location and a opportunity for individuals at least 55 years of age and older to meet on a regular basis, to receive information on issues pertaining to them and their welfare, to engage in discussions of interest in the township and to socialize with their neighbors and friends.
The group is grateful for the Jenkins Township Hose Company for allowing them to use their building for the meetings. The group meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Several luncheons are held each year and special meetings are held to celebrate various holidays.
The group cordially invites anyone to become a member of the organization. During this membership drive, the group hopes to increase numbers significantly. If you are interested, please contact an officer or stop by the next meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, at the Jenkins Township Hose Company.
