Center offers Wednesday breakfast and Thursday lunch each week

Anyone who has reached that 55-year-old mark has the opportunity to sit down to a homemade lunch each Thursday, in the heart of Richfield. They can also enjoy a breakfast on Wednesdays. Goodwill offerings are accepted.

Peggy Patterson prepares the meals at the Richfield Senior Center and they are served with a smile. Bring your friends and stick around after eating and play a board game or a card game, just visit or play bingo. Here’s a great place to start your own book group, keep up with friends from the past or make new friends in a comfortable atmosphere.

Most people find that after their children are out of school, they start to lose connections with people in the community. Their social world gets smaller. Here’s the place where residents re-connect.

The center is open Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. and there is no requirement to be a resident of Richfield to attend. The annual membership fee of $10, $15 for non-Richfield residents, can be paid on your first visit. ∞
