GARDINER — The Oldies but Goodies Senior Center recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary. The center was the dream of Laurie Saunders, of Gardiner. Saunders mentioned her idea to several people and her dream became a reality.

Six people met in the library of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Gardiner for this first meeting. Each week these members brought in more seniors until the center out grew the space.

The Gardiner Elks Lodge 1293 invited the seniors to use its lodge and the seniors moved across town for their activities. The center had room to grow, the group now has 72 members.

Members meet each Thursday to play games, plan activities and trips, and share stories and good humor.

The center is open to those 50 and older in the greater Gardiner area. The center is under the guidance of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Gardiner.
