The Heritage Center is a 55-plus recreation center for people who like to stay active, learn, get services, go places, stay healthy, play, volunteer, meet people, enjoy life and more. 

Lunch is served Tuesday through Friday anytime between 11:30-12:30 p.m. and you pay for your meal after picking up your food. No reservations are needed, except for special events. Options include the regular menu item, salad, Panini and sandwiches. The cost ranges from $2 to $4 for people over 55.  

The Heritage Center is looking for additional computer instructors. Please call if interested.

The center would like to help you with your fitness goals:

1) Monthly Fitness Pass: Pay $30 the first week of each month and then attend as many classes as you’d like, plus utilize the exercise room as much as you’d like. 

2) Sliver Sneaker: Does your Medicare supplement include the Silver Sneaker program? The center is now a Silver Sneaker location. Silver Sneaker members now receive free use of the exercise room. Bring your Silver Sneaker ID into the center and learn how it all works.

3) Select Health: Did you know if you have the Select Health Advantage plan that your wellness reimbursement will pay for exercises classes at the center?  Just sign up and pay, keep your receipt and submit it to Select Health for reimbursement. They reimburse up to $20 per month or $240 per year for your health and wellness needs. So the Heritage fitness pass would only cost $10 per month after reimbursement. That’s $10 for any exercise class & the fitness room.
