The purpose of a senior citizens center is to be a community focal point where older adults that are 60 years and over can come together for a variety of individual and group services and activities that reflect their experience and skills; provide nutritionally sound meals; respond to their diverse needs and interests; encourage their involvement within the center and the community; enhance their dignity and quality of life; provide various forms of assistance to enable them to live healthy and independent as long as possible.
The Enterprise Senior Center invites you to come in for a nutritionally balanced lunch served from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm in the dining room each day the center is open for business (generally 3 days per week; closed on county observed holidays). The suggested donation is $3.00 for individuals who are 60 years of age or older and their spouses. Those under 60 years of age are required to pay a set fee. Reservations are required. To make a reservation, please contact the Center 24 hours in advance at 435-878-2557.
Meals on Wheels is a service provided to those who are 60 years of age or older, unable to leave their home without assistance from someone else, and unable to drive. The Meals on Wheels program is available throughout Washington County and provides a nutritionally balanced meal & beverage (2% milk), following the dietary guidelines of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U. S. Department of Agriculture. The Enterprise Senior Center serves the Enterprise and Beryl areas.
