Welcome to the New Senior Citizen's Corner!

Senior Citizens Club of Florham Park
Come visit the Florham Park Senior Center
The Senior Center was built to enrich the lives of all our Seniors and those who can't get out will especially benefit from this opportunity for a change of scenery. In addition you can meet with many other Seniors and get to know them. The Center is a warm, homey building which is open Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. & 4:30 p.m.
If you would like to visit the Center and do not have transportation, please call the Center at 973-520-8984 or Dennis Callahan at 973-360-1875 and we will try to arrange transportation for you. Please remember, you do not have to be a member of any organization or club to use the Center as long as you are over the age of 62. All are welcome.
The Center has a comfortable living room where you can watch TV, curl up with a good book, play a game, work a jigsaw puzzle, simply chat or enjoy a cat nap on the comfortable furniture. The Seniors are looking to get a piano as one of the regulars play. Also, there is a game room where most afternoons Rimmikub and various other card games are being played. Also, a flat panel TV which can be used to play arcade games with the donated Nintendo Wii is also available. The Center also has a Craft Room where visitors can knit, crochet , sew or do a craft of their choice. The center also has a WiFi Network so you can access the internet on your laptop, smart phone or iPad if you wish to. There is also a nice large kitchen with a refrigerator, stove and microwave. Seniors usually bring their own lunch, snacks and beverages, although the Center has coffee, tea and related supplies which are donated. In the spring trees will be planted and outdoor seating and the purchase of a barbeque grill is planned. The Seniors are looking forward to some warmer weather. So come down and check it out. You will not be disappointed!
To get to the Center turn in by the Gazebo; turn right before the library; then turn left in the Center of the parking lot behind the Municipal Building. The Senior Center is the yellow building on the right. There is ample parking at the Center.
Senior Center Phone Number:
The Club meets at 11am on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of each month from September through May or you can drop in daily Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The Club has many organized activities each week. Any ideas for additional activities are welcomed. Call us at (973) 520-8983.
The Florham Park Seniors Center started a new Friday Lunchtime Matinee! A movie will be shown weekly (with the exception of holidays, i.e. the day after Thanksgiving) on Friday at 12:30 p.m. Seniors are encouraged to come early, bring lunch, and socialize. Program organizer Dennis Callahan will continually monitor the preferences of the movie attendees, to make sure they are showing the types of films our seniors enjoy. Please refer to the Newsletter for dates and times.
New Activities Committee:
A Senior Center New Activities Committee meets monthly. Its goal is to identify appropriate new activities for the center, and to expedite putting them in place. We are very eager to add to the Committee a few town residents aged 62 or over who are not members of the Seniors Club or AARP Chapter, whose organizations are already well represented on the Committee. Our goal is to have as broad a representation as possible of all our senior citizen residents who have done so much to make Florham Park the special place it is today. If you are interested in serving on the Committee, or have any ideas for additional Senior Center Activities, please call Dennis Callahan at 973-360-1875.
