Weather-related Closings and Delays
Leader Center is closed Tuesday, February 13, 2024 due to inclement weather.
The Leader Center for Active Life is a place for active adults in Hershey and surrounding communities, to enjoy fitness, educational opportunities, socialization, community service opportunities, and so much more. Stop by today to learn more about Dauphin County’s most active senior community center. Open to individuals 50 and over.
Research shows older adults who participate in senior center programs can learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic disease and experience measurable improvements in their physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being.
Today’s senior centers are reinventing themselves to meet the needs and desires of three generations of older adults. Baby Boomers now constitute more than two-thirds of the 50+ population. Senior centers are developing new programs and opportunities for this dynamic generation of older adults and have an eye towards the future with the leading age of Generation X turning 60 in 2025.
