The Gardner Senior Center utilizes a computer program called “MY SENIOR CENTER” and this enables us to know how many people make use of the center. By registering as a member (NO FEE INVOLVED) you receive a scan card which enables you to sign in on our computer monitor. Swiping your card is not mandatory, but if you choose to, the senior center may gain some additional funds/grants based on how many feet walk through the doors. If you would like to receive a scan card, see Celeste or Claude in the first floor office. Please note that no information you provide is ever shared with anyone.
