Senior news

By Wende Kluener - For PCCOA

PREBLE COUNTY — The Preble County Council on Aging (PCCOA) has several great opportunities for seniors.

Senior Center Activities

Summer is here and the Senior Center is OPEN! If you aren’t sure what to do with your time, plan to join us for lots of activities and great food. Please check out our website at, click on Calendar, and start planning your month full of things to do with us! If you aren’t a member, you can join for just $10 a year and get our bi-monthly newsletter delivered right to your door. Senior Scene includes activities calendars, menus and great information from our contributors. Stay current and get your senior center news first.

Help Needed

We are looking for those of you who would like to help seniors by delivering meals. We continue to get more clients for home delivered meals and now have a waiting list. Delivering meals is fun and the seniors look forward to seeing you each day during the week. Often times you are the only person our clients see each day. This job is incredibly special and vital as we provide wellness checks for our senior clients each day throughout the week. We also need help in our kitchen with meal prep and service in our Decades Diner. If you are interested, please stop by and fill out an application or give us a call for more information.

We Need Volunteers

Our levy is fast approaching on Tuesday, Nov. 2, and we will be providing all the necessary information for you to make an informed choice when we ask you to vote for our seniors in November! But today, we would like to let you know that we are looking for volunteers to help with our Levy “Honk-Ins.” We will be out on the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 29 at various locations throughout Preble County with posters and waves to the public all in an attempt to drive awareness that our senior center needs support this year in the November election. If you would like to join us, please contact Wende Kluener at [email protected] or call 937-456-4947 for details and to sign up!

Thursday Night Weekly Dance – I Dance My Way

Our dance will return at the Preble County Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 4 beginning at 5 p.m. and then continue each Thursday thereafter at the Big Red Barn, Senior Center, 800 E. St Clair Street.

Sponsor-a-Senior – Meals on Wheels

You can make a difference in a senior’s life by donating just $12.50 a week. That’s $2.50 per day; $50 a month or $600 a year, or any amount will help. Your donation provides so much more than a hot, nutritious meal. You help provide a visit by one of our trained drivers to bring not only a meal, but a wellness check, a smile and conversation, and help with tasks such as bringing in the mail. Our drivers look forward to checking on his/her seniors each week day and the seniors look forward to seeing our drivers. Please consider making a donation by calling 937-456-4947.
