Bexley SENIOR CENTER
Dating back nearly 40 years, a group of passionate residents organized themselves to plan trips, luncheons and other activities for older adults in Bexley. Today, we are adding to that vision by expanding services to our older adults. Thanks to the support of Mayor Ben Kessler and Bexley City Council, the Bexley Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) and a generous $30,000 grant from the Bexley Community Foundation (BCF), the Bexley Recreation and Parks opened the city’s first senior center located at 420 N. Cassady Ave. The new center is the cornerstone of a feasibility study to evaluate the demand for a more robust senior center to be developed in the years to come.
The Bexley Senior Center is available to all adults 55+, as both a gathering space and as a location for recreation programming. Some of the programs and activities include euchre, Mah Jongg, book clubs, art projects, lifelong learning opportunities, and more. Various events are held at the new senior center such as football watch parties, movie nights on the projector screen, mini concerts, lectures and more.
While we have continued to offer trip-based programming and some classes for 55+ at Jeffrey Mansion, the new senior center is a space dedicated to older adults in our community. This is a wonderful opportunity for our older adults to demonstrate the need for a larger, more permanent location in the future. We encourage our 55+ community to join the center and enjoy the benefits it has to offer. Together we will continue to expand and improve services to our older adults.
Memberships are open to all residents and non-residents aged 55+ and are paid on an annual basis (January 1 - December 31):
- Bexley Residents: $20/individual and $30/couple
- Non-Residents: $35/individual and $45/couple
