GREAT FALLS – The Great Falls Seniors Center offers more than it looks. Bob Meyers, a longtime employee of the center, told MTN News about some of the activities: “We have pool tables, bingo, home cooked meals, and we even have live music and dancing. “
Marlene and Ivan Bauer have been coming to the center for years and their favorite activities by far are “eating and dancing”.
The center has been a community center and meeting place for the elderly for years and continues to help anyone who walks through the door.
This month’s perk is a $ 50 pack of Great Falls Farmer’s Market coupons.
“The application is simple; it’s a page and you just have to fill it out and if you qualify i will give you the coupons. Meyers said. “But you can only use them for fruits and vegetables, you can’t buy baked goods.”
“It has helped the food budget, trust me, it’s a wonderful, wonderful program,” said coupon recipient Diane Mau.
If you would like to apply, call the Senior Center at 406-454-6995 and ask for Bob Meyers.
The Senior Center is located at 1004 Central Avenue.
