MISSION STATEMENT

It is the mission of the Palmyra Senior Citizens Program, Inc. to enhance lives of men and women, age 55 and older, by developing and implementing a broad array of recreational, social, informational, nutritional, advisory, and referral services.  The program aims to improve the quality of life for each of the people it serves.  Further, it is pledged to respond to the expressed needs and suggestions of the older population and the community as a whole.

OUR HISTORY

Organized in 2007, the Palmyra/Riverton Senior Program, subsequently named the Palmyra Senior Citizens program, Inc., offers a myriad of activities.  We provide social activities and workshops for the member-ship through various venues.  Participants become aware of support systems, emergency services, concepts of wellness, adequate healthcare, alcohol/tobacco/and other drug related problems, and involvement in intergenerational community activities.  Discussions of the aging process and medications are emphasized.  This program is integrated with other senior groups, the school system, community businesses, doctors, VNA, pharmacies, and the Office on Aging.  We enjoy each other’s company and give back to the community on a regular basis.  All seniors who live in Burlington County are welcome.  An annual donation of $15.00 includes mega perks.
