Lawrence Township Senior Center

The Lawrence Senior Center is open to Lawrence senior citizens, 60 years of age and older, for a wide range of activities, including exercise, health and wellness options, educational talks, intergenerational programming and socialization/recreation opportunities. The Senior Center is located on 30 Darrah Lane East and is open Monday-Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm. 

The Office on Aging staff also provides information, assistance and referrals to social services, linking Lawrence seniors to the network of senior service providers. The Lawrence Township Senior center is a County Nutrition site, serving hot lunches to registered seniors, and also a location for AARP Tax Aide offering free tax preparation for seniors during the tax season.

Residents are welcome to volunteer at the senior center and donate their skills and talents to benefit our senior residents. The motto of the Senior Center is "Living It Up, Sharing the Joy"! Lawrence Seniors are encouraged to take part int the activities sponsored by the Office on Aging (Live It Up!); and to take advantage of the opportunities to contribute positively to our community (Share the Joy!). For example, seniors from the Busy Bee class have taught students from the Lawrenceville School how to knit and crochet, in turn these students taught the seniors basic, intermediate and advanced computer skills.  Currently, the Busy Bees and senior center volunteers are passionately working on lap blankets to donate to residents of nursing homes, assisted living, and senior housing groups. The senior center volunteer group also creates hats and scarves to donate to homeless individuals, young children and local neighbors that can use a helping hand.
