The Charles and Anna Mae Lofino Senior Adult and Cultural Enrichment Center officially opened its door on June 25, 2005, with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house.  This facility is the home for the Beavercreek Senior Center and the Beavercreek Community Theater.

The Center has a beautiful lobby area, spacious great room, library, game room, computer room and fitness center.  The space provides opportunities for classes such as painting, exercise, billiards, knitting, yoga, dominos, corn hole, ping pong and much more.  The Great Room provides a spacious dining area and a fully equipped kitchen for lunches and special events.  The Center also offers a top notch fitness area with state-of-the-art fitness equipment including treadmills, bikes and user-friendly weight equipment.  There’s no need to go to a fitness club to get and stay in shape for successful aging.

Memberships to the Center allow free use of the facilities as well as discounts on classes, members-only special events, a subscription to the monthly newsletter, and more.  Senior Residents age 55 and up residing in the City of Beavercreek and Beavercreek Township are only $30 per year per person.  Seniors residing outside of Beavercreek may join the Center for only $45 per year per person.  Non members may purchase a daily admissions pass for $5 residents and $7 non residents.  Confidential scholarships are available by speaking to the Center Director.
