Wilkinsburg Senior Activities Center

A senior center, at long last, is coming to Wilkinsburg! The Borough will soon be renovating the auditorium on the third floor (elevator available) of the borough building to create a space for senior’s activities.

Those who planned the activities met once every two weeks for the past several months to provide their input and have been working hard to ensure that this day is a success.

The first senior’s activity day will take place on Tuesday, October 10th beginning at 9:30 am and ending in the afternoon. Attendees can look forward to a fun day of guest speakers, light exercise, activities led by our library staff, and more. Don’t miss it – this is the only date in October that this event will take place!
