1975 to 2010
On April 17, 1975 fourteen people gathered together for an informal meeting to start the Bordentown Township Senior Citizens’ Club. The club slowly grew and today the members total 265.
The meeting sites changed from year to year. Members met in individual homes, churches, at the American Legion Post, at a community room in the Bank of Mid-Jersey and the Derby Fire House.
In 1980, the club obtained a Certificate of Incorporation, allowing them to obtain a federal grant.
This led to being awarded a small city grant and then a bond to construct a new building. The new Bordentown Township Senior Citizens’ Club building was erected on August 29, 1997.
Today our seniors continue charity outreach projects throughout the township, surrounding areas and Burlington County. If our center is aware of a need, it does its best to fill that need. We have done outreach within the community by supporting every township event, veterans needs, children that are in need, nursing homes, and much more.
We continue to support our township and continue to grow in capacity. We enjoy as a group, many outreach projects, themed parties, games, socialization and attend two meetings a month.
