Welcome to Your Senior Center!
The mission of the Delta Area Community Senior Center, Inc. is to establish, maintain and operate a Senior Citizen Center in the Delta area to advance the physical, social and emotional well-being of PA residents 60 years of age or older on a non-profit basis.
The center is a community facility in which older persons can make new friends, learn a skill, enhance significance, preserve dignity or just kick back and enjoy life.
The center is open Monday thru Friday from 7AM to 2PM and there is no registration fee or dues. The Rabbit Transit Van is available for transportation to and from the Senior Center. At this time there is no fee to ride the bus from your home to the senior center.
A calendar of events is distributed monthly and can be found here. Most classes or events require pre-registration to insure adequate preparation. Sign up sheets can be found at the center.
Funding: The only funding Delta Senior Center receives from York County Area Agency on Aging is $3.75 per person eating lunch in the Delta Senior Center. We eat lunch everyday at noon. Please try to join us for lunch.We need to fund raise at least $60,000.00 a year to keep the senior center in operation. If you would like to make a donation, make your check payable to Delta Senior Center. Money will be used for programs and operation of the center. Thank You.
