Senior Citizen’s Corner
Welcome to the Senior Citizen’s Corner
Senior Citizens Club Holiday Luncheon
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, 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 a Florham Park resident 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. There is also a game room where most afternoons Rummikub and various card games are being played. 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 even 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. We also have a nice large room, that can be divided in 2, for exercise classes, seminars, large meetings and movies. This room has easy access to the kitchen for serving its users, and a second flat panel TV for use in exercise classes, Wii bowling tournaments, etc. It also has a large pull down screen, sophisticated sound system, and a projector for movies and presentations. Outside trees have been planted and limited outdoor seating is available. So come down and check it out. You will not be disappointed!

The Senior Citizens Club of Florham Park is a social club whose primary purpose is to bring seniors together to have a good time. Both new and long-standing friends enjoy one another’s company at the newly constructed Senior Center and on reasonably priced day trips and multi-day vacations. Membership is open to any Florham Park resident age 62 or over, and to a younger spouse of a member. If you do not have transportation, the members will try and arrange it for you. The Club meets at 11 am on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of each month from September through May at the Florham Park Community Center located at Emmett Field.

Our local AARP Chapter 5109 presents, in a cheerful manner, activities and programs resulting in a better quality of life for all.
Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am and usually run until 11:30 – 12:00. During the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 we meet via Zoom platform. Hopes are that in-person meetings will resume at the Florham Park Community Center by Spring 2021. Zoom likely will remain a feature due to it’s convenience during the inclement weather and/or for members who may be traveling, etc.
Our motto is:“To Serve-Not To Be Served”.
Adults ages 50 and above (both residents and non residents) are invited to attend these meetings as our guests and to join our Chapter. Refreshments are served between the meeting and the program.
