Why is the Peterson Senior Activity Center so important to the Kearney community?
It give seniors a beautiful place to gather and participate in activities that they normally wouldn't do! The food is awesome and affordable and the staff go the extra mile to make all of the services available to everyone!! I utilize the computer room for volunteer trainings, and it is great to be able to eat there and not have to cater in.
What do you value most about the Peterson Senior Activity Center?
I find the Center so welcoming. When people walk in the door there are smiles and people welcoming everyone. The Center gives me the opportunity to spend time with friends that I otherwise don’t get to see very often. I’ve met people who have been part of our community but I’ve not had a chance to meet before. It feels like a community and I value being part of a supportive and interesting community.
What are some Senior Center programs/Amenities that you utilize the most? I love going on the trips, be it a day trip, a mystery trip, or an extended trip. It gives one an opportunity to go to a concert, play, sporting events, a "mystery", or someplace that most seniors would mot be able to go on their own. Being with friendly seniors sharing good times and stories. Being there for those who need someone.
