Senior Center more vibrant than ever
Senior Center more vibrant than ever

Welcome to Linden’s Senior Center.  The Center, funded by grants, provides hot meals and more for those who visit.  The Center staff will also carry meals out to those who can’t be at lunch.  This wasn’t originally planned to be a senior center.  This building once served the community as the school lunchroom for the elementary, junior and high school.
