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!

April 19, 10:00am-12:00pm.
After 2 years of mostly meeting via Zoom, the Florham Park AARP resumes in-person meetings again at the Florham Park Community & Recreation Center.
Making that meeting even more special will be:
- The recognition of our President, for “Joelyn Hoferer Day” as proclaimed for her volunteerism at the February 2022 Borough Council meeting, and
- The presentation of “Sweet Treats: Desserts & Delicacies from the Garden State” presented by the Madison Museum of Early Trades & Crafts. This program explores a variety of “sweet” culinary traditions from the 18th and 19th centuries and considers how the treats we enjoy have changed. It will also discuss the process and ingredients of making these food items, then and now.
This free meeting and presentation is open to all members of our community who are between the ages of 50-120. AARP membership is not required, but applications will be available for anyone interested!
