The Clarence Senior Center enriches the lives of seniors in our community through a wide variety of activities, programs, classes and experiences that will educate, inform, entertain and involve them. Seniors age fifty-five and over are welcome regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, or nationality.

ENJOY A NUTRITIOUS LUNCH AT THE SENIOR CENTER!
The CSC is an Erie County Nutrition Program Dining site open to Erie County residents 60 or older and their spouses. The County coordinates the delivery of meals to the Center. The Center employs a Nutrition Coordinator who, along with volunteers, prepares and serves the meals at 12:30 pm Monday through Friday. Special luncheons with entertainment are held on many occasions throughout the year.
The suggested contribution for lunch is $3.00 for those 60 years of age and over. Guests under the age of 60 will be charged $6.00 for lunch.
Meals are well balanced, healthy and nutritious, with consideration being given to those who have special dietary needs. Meals are ordered two weeks in advance. Sign-up for meals can be done on site or by calling the Senior Center Office at 633-5138.
NEED A RIDE?
The Town of Clarence provides a vehicle for Center use. Its main purpose is to provide transportation for members to and from the Center. The vehicle picks up passengers Monday through Friday. Members can call the office at 633-5138 for pick-up arrangements. Reservations are on a first-call, first-reserved basis. Passengers vary on a daily basis, thus pick-up time will also vary.
Weekly trips are scheduled to area supermarkets and shopping centers. Reservations can be made by calling the Office. The current shopping schedule is subject to change and is listed in the latest issue of the Silver Streak.
A suggested donation is requested to help defray costs, which can be handed to the driver as you enter the van. The responsibility of vehicle drivers is limited to providing hand held assistance to passengers as they enter or leave the vehicle.
Other transportation options for seniors are available through Rural Transit or The Erie County Going Places Van. Information on these services is available by clicking on the Resources tab above.
The 14-passenger CSC bus is used to transport members to and from the Center and to local shopping centers.
