The Gibson Center
Proudly Serving Senior Citizens
The Gibson Center for Senior Services is a non-profit corporation providing services to senior citizens of Northern Carroll County since 1979. Our goal is to enable seniors to remain in their homes, while maintaining a high level of independence and quality of life through the offering of an evolving array of programs and services. Our programs are designed to serve the needs of these active and passive senior residents through nutrition programs (home delivery, congregate meals and nutrition education), transportation programs for the elderly and disabled to help meet their daily living needs, social and educational programs to enable them to stay actively involved in their communities with purpose and dignity, and referral and networking programs with related community service agencies.
From The Director's Desk
Open and thrilled to welcome everyone back!
It has been a very long time coming. It was too quiet without you. You felt it and so did we. But now….we had our first Congregate lunch on July 22 with laughter, a few tears and an abundance of joy as we sat 6 to a table on the “new” tables that arrived the week of March 13, 2020. Becky and Jill are back giving announcements with the new sound system donated by Rev. Ray Stineford and his wife Dr. Helen Prince. Barbara Campbell and Joan Kenney are back at their table greeting everyone. We are only able to open because of the volunteers who stepped forward to greet, register and serve every day.
The vibrancy has returned to the building. We are eager to have you join us for lunch, an exercise class, the Veteran’s coffee, a class, or a day trip. The rest of the newsletter is dedicated to making sure you know about the activities and events happening here. Do not be shy. We hope you will tell your friends, bring your neighbors, find some family members and share the experience. The building when empty was frankly lonely and now it has come back to life. Tell us what you want to see happening. We are here for you.
