Monroeville Senior Center


The Monroeville Senior Citizen Center, built in 1980, has become the hub of activity for Monroeville and Pitcairn seniors. The Center provides daily activities, services, and programs for adults 50 years of age and older.

As of June 2010 the center had over 2000 members. On average the center has approximately 4,500 visits per month with an average of 55,000 visits per year.

The center offers a variety of weekly and monthly activities: Social clubs, book club, computer club, Wii bowling league, shuffleboard league, contact bridge card group, pinochle card group, Mon Jongg group, domino group, arts and craft groups, monthly bingo and luncheon, movies days, instructional classes, computer classes, trips and tours, and special events.

Services offered to seniors have included health services, counseling services, income tax assistance and drivers training classes. The free health services include blood pressure screenings and hearing screenings. The Stroke Group, created to aid stroke victims, meets here on a weekly basis for exercise, games, and socializing. Financial Counseling is also available through AARP. In addition, the center provides a free bus service to residents of Monroeville and Pitcairn for shopping trips, club meetings, and special events held at the center.

In January 2009 the center opened a fitness center. The facility features a great line of senior friendly cardio and strength training equipment including Star Trac treadmills, total body cross trainers, Expresso virtual reality recumbent bikes, and the Star Trac Humansport strength training system. The use of this room is “FREE to all Monroeville/Pitcairn residents 65 years of age or older. A minimal fee is charged for adults 50-64 years and nonresident’s ages 60+.

The center also offers a variety of fitness programs which include: low impact aerobics, step aerobics, yoga, tai chi, line dancing, strength training classes, and Zumba. The center also became a Silver Sneakers site in January of 2010. Silver Sneakers aerobic classes are offered each day, including Muscular Strength and Range of Movement, Cardio Circuit, and Yoga Stretch.

All of the center's activities, programs, and services depend on one key element for maintaining success -- volunteers. Volunteers are found at the heart of all activities. Without the able dedication of volunteers, the center would not be able to provide the pleasure and enjoyment to the many residents who attend the programs and activities.
