Senior news

PREBLE COUNTY — The Senior Center has several great opportunities for seniors.

Upcoming Online Classes

We have some really cool online activities planned for the beginning of the year! Stay tuned for laugher yoga, brunch with Holly, fitness fun, chronic disease classes, and so much more! We are going to be Zooming our way into the New Year.

Another exciting piece to this is that we have tablets with hot spots ready to share for those seniors that are interested and in need of a way to zoom. I want to connect with you and see each of you, and you get to see each other! Please contact Holly at 937-456-4947 for those interested.

Holiday Food Baskets

There is still time to donate food for our Holiday Food Basket Program. You can drop off food at the Senior Activities Center, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Suggested food donations are: macaroni & cheese, soup, dried beans, oatmeal, applesauce, vegetables, cereal, fruit cans, minute rice, paper towels, Jello, pudding, tuna, spam, cookies, jelly, Kleenex, napkins.

Help us eliminate senior hunger in Preble County, by donating to our Sponsor-A-Senior Program. Money raised for this program helps us feed hot nutritious meals to local seniors. It costs $2.50 per meal, $12.50 per week, $50 per month and $600 per year to feed one senior.

Please help us provide meals to seniors, by donating at our website at, or call us and pay with a card over the phone, stop by or mail a check in, listing Sponsor-A-Senior in the memo sections. Thank You.
