The Lawrence Senior Center is open to Lawrence senior citizens, 60 years of age and older, for a wide range of activities. 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 and linking Lawrence seniors to the network of senior service providers.
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, citizens 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. In the past, the Lawrence Senior Center celebrated Black History month and the seniors raised funds for summer camp scholarships for Lawrenceville youngsters. Currently, seniors in the Sewing Group are passionately working on smocks, comfort pillows and blankets, collecting clothing and toiletries to donate to Angels' Wings a local residential program for infants and children awaiting placement in foster homes.
Call the Office on Aging to arrange for our van to pick you up and bring you to the center, local food shopping or doctor's appointments.
Mercer County also provides transportation through T.R.A.D.E. by calling (609) 530-1971.
