The Bob and Wanda Meyer Senior and Community Center is focused as a place where seniors can socialize and enhance quality of life. The facility offers a variety of both passive and active programs and activities including line dancing, computer club, basic jewelry making, and more.
 
At the heart of the center’s mission is the namesakes’ family. After his beloved wife Wanda passed away, Bob would come to the Southwood Community Center daily to enjoy his cup of coffee and visit with his peers. Periodically, he would participate in the programs offered; but more than anything, he craved the social benefit.

AS OF FEB. 9: Senior adults (ages 55+) are invited to participate in outdoor programming at the Meyer Senior and Community Center (outdoor patio) beginning Monday, March 1. We're still evaluating when indoor programming will return, and we'll continue to base our decisions on federal, state, and local guidance that prioritizes public health and safety.

Outdoor programming offers senior adults an opportunity to get active, stay healthy, and engage with others. We have a variety of programs to choose from, and a membership isn't required. Class sizes are limited to 20 and require advance registration. Participants are encouraged to bring their own coffee, drinks, and snacks. Food and drinks are not available.
