It's time to update your vision of the WASC, it’s not what it used to be!  It’s become a vibrant,
action-packed combination of dining, special events, and daily activities that make it a fun place to be.

 

The WASC goes beyond card games and bingo!  We have expanded our programs to include:
crafts, live entertainment, travel, fitness, education, and special events.

Join the WASC, become a member and/or volunteer and make new friends.

About Us

Everyone ages. It is an inherent property of life. As our bodies and minds develop over time, we adapt to these changes by modifying our decisions and actions. The later years of life can be especially challenging, but the Williamston Area Senior Center is here to help. At the Williamston Area Senior Center, we listen to the needs of our members in order to understand their limitations and discuss potential solutions. We work with our community members to customize options that will help them lead the lives they want.

Family Visit

Socialization

Our hearts and brains are constantly changing, and just like the muscles in our body, they can lose strength if we don’t exercise them enough. It is especially important for seniors to stay physically and mentally active on a daily basis, which is why we offer a variety of classes to help get your body and mind moving. They’re fun and enjoyable for everyone, and a great way to meet our members.
