The Great Falls Senior Citizens Center is housed in a two-story building in the heart of downtown Great Falls. Fully accessible to the handicapped, we offer four pool tables, a computer room, an exercise room, and a spacious card room on our second floor. With room for 200, our main floor features the Snack Bar, a hostess gift counter, a reading room, and a large dance area. Both floors are equipped with conveniently-located rest rooms that are wheel chair accessible. Parking is rarely a problem with large lots on both sides of our facility, including seven handicapped spaces.

Nutrition Site

Cascade County Aging Services has designated our facility as a congregate meal site. This important service provides a nutritional lunch between 11:30am and noon on Monday through Thursday for a minimal donation. Nutrition meals ensure that our members, as well as, all local seniors, can enjoy a hot, nourishing meal. ( Suggested donation is currently $4.00)

Newsletter

As a member of the Great Falls Senior Citizen's Center, you'll receive our newsletter, the Golden Times. Published monthly, the newsletter offers a complete preview of activities and menus. You'll also enjoy the feature stories about our members along with other useful information of interest to seniors. Best of all, the Golden Times is mailed right to your home address at no charge.

Snack Bar

Our snack bar is much like the corner café of yesteryear, complete with delicious home-cooked food at prices everyone can afford. Senior Center members gather daily at our Snack Bar for coffee and lively conversation with friends. Open five days a week from 8:30am to 1:00pm, the snack bar features breakfast and lunch specials daily. We serve hearty breakfasts and offer robust soups and sandwiches for lunch. There's also a Supper Club every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. that serves a full dinner at a great price. You'll always be greeted and served with a smile from our kitchen staff.

Hostess Gift Counter

Our hostess gift counter serves our members in a variety of ways. Manned by a pool of cordial volunteers, the hostess gift counter makes sure your telephone and personal inquires are handled promptly and courteously. Memberships can be opened and reviewed from the hostess gift counter. A select variety of greeting cards and other unique gifts and consignment items also are available at this convenient location. The hostess gift counter also loans books and puzzles to our members at no charge.
Open Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 3:00pm.

Membership

The Great Falls Senior Citizen's Center welcomes any person 50 and older to join our organization. Membership dues are just $20 per year. No person 50 or older is denied access to activities or usage of our facility because of an inability to contribute annual dues. Your membership dues are a vital revenue source that helps fund the Center's operations. Members are welcome to bring guests. We encourage all of our members to actively participate in various committees, run for office in our corporation and vote in our elections. The success of our facility greatly depends on the volunteer efforts of our members!
