Harrison has two very active Senior Citizens Clubs, sponsored by the Recreation Department.
The West Harrison Group meets on Thursday, from 12:00 p.m. through 3:00 p.m. at the Leo Mintzer Community Center, 251 Underhill Avenue to discuss items of interest, play bingo, and discuss activities coming up in the near future. Dues are $24.00 per year. Refreshments are served.
The Downtown Group meets every Friday from 12:00 p.m. through 3:00 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 210 Halstead Avenue. Dues are $24.00 per year. Refreshments are served. We also have a drop-in center at the Harrison Community Center, 216 Halstead Avenue, available Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. where you may enjoy television, cards and socializing. Tuesday exercise classes from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Harrison Community Center.
The Visiting Nurse Services in Westchester visits our Senior Citizens Centers on a monthly basis to provide free blood pressure screening. The nurse is available at the Harrison Community Center from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and at the Mintzer Community Center from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Contact the office for specific dates. Flu shots are administered once a year in October by the Westchester County Public Health Nurses. If you have Medicare Part B, it is free -- if not -- there is a fee.
Both groups participate in many activities including luncheons, day trips, overnight trips, special movie dates, exercise and line dancing classes, just to name a few. All Seniors are very welcomed to join the nearest center and to participate in all its activities.
