Eastern Upper Bucks Senior Center is funded, in part, under a contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and The County of Bucks.
Nockamixon Township applies for a yearly grant on our behalf that is approved by Bucks County and HUD (Housing and Urban Development). Please consider joining the center to help meet the increasing grant demands for our much needed community senior center. Thanks!
Eastern Upper Bucks Senior Center began in 1980 when a group of seniors met at St. Luke’s Church in Ferndale. Later they met at Wolfinger’s store in Ottsville, then Palisades high school. In 1984, a store front was rented in Bucksville Shopping Center. The first meetings had 35 members. Various townships funded the senior center. By 1989, there were about 100 members. As the center grew, a lending library was established. Various exercise classes including ball room dancing were taught. There was a pool table and various games were played, the most popular being pinochle. Once a month, the group met for lunch at a local restaurant and went on trips every once in a while. To generate money for the center, they sewed rugs. Early on the dues were just $2 per person.
On May 7, 2001, the center relocated to a new larger building on Route 611 where we currently are today. In October 2001, an open house was held. The center continued to grow in its new location.
In September 2018, we began our sandwich or salad congregate meal program sponsored by Bucks County Area Agency on Aging. Presently, we are known as a friendly senior center that provides specific help to low to moderate income seniors as well as providing our unique congregate meal program, exercise classes, health, educational and nutrition programs, trips, and a great way to socialize. We are a liaison for the Bucks County Area Agency on Aging, distribute produce vouchers in the summer, and volunteer tax counselors from AARP help seniors with income tax preparation in the early winter.
An executive board consisting of president, vice president, 2nd vice president, treasurer, assistant treasurer, secretary as well as 3 trustees govern the senior center. A paid center manager runs the day to day operations of the center.
