We love our Community!

They are proud to be part of such a wonderful community and hope to continue to not only serve the seniors but the community as a whole for many generations to come.
Making A Difference
At the Golden Age Center, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts to let the community know we are here to serve our seniors. Come by and say 'hi' to the staff and the members that are enjoying activities. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

With this initiative, our goal is to provide good tasting, nutritious lunches to our seniors. In partnership with Upper Arkansas Area Agency of Aging our lunch staff is one of the best around. The staff and volunteers serve your meal at your seat and cleans up. These aren't your normal 'senior' meals!! Lots of fellowship - come and give it a try. If you are over age 60, the cost is $2.00. Best kept secret in Fremont County!
