Senior Center News
It works… you’ll be stronger, have better balance, feel better, and this will help you stay active, independent and prevent falls.
Please bring your group to the Waynesboro Senior Center for Bingo during February or March. Your residents will have a lot of fun, playing for “ALL CASH” prizes — we’ll make sure they have a great time!
Come join us and help support the Waynesboro Senior Center. Our Thursday night Bingo program has volunteering opportunities for cashiers and cooks. Volunteers are organized in four teams that rotate once a month. If you’d like to help, please contact Karen Hurt at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-942-1838.
Waynesboro Senior Center is very pleased to host AARP Tax Aide again this year. This program uses trained volunteers to provide free income tax preparation to low and moderate income individuals of all ages. The IRS provides yearly training, testing and certification for all the volunteer tax counselors.

Butch Kidd was suffering from depression, and just couldn’t get out of his funk.
“I didn’t want to go anywhere. Didn’t have anything to do with the family. I just wanted to lay down and die. That’s what I told my wife,” Kidd said.
He started seeing a psychiatrist.
“He put me on every pill you could think of. Nothing helped,” Kidd said.
A neighbor told him to check out the Waynesboro Senior Center.
“One day I just decided to come over and see what it was like,” Kidd said.
Since joining the Senior Center, he has come out of his depression. He’s handling his diabetes better.
“I’ve lost weight,” he said.
“The Senior Center has changed my life,” Kidd said.
“I’m active. I have something to live for, something to do every day. The people here are just wonderful. It’s really changed my life.”
Larry Ransome has been a member of the Waynesboro Senior Center since 2004.
“It gives me the chance to meet new people,” said Ransome, who is a member of the Local Council at the Senior Center, which provides guidance to staff on activities and programs.
Everybody at the Senior Center knows Ransome.
“They say, There comes that big mouth, Larry. But that’s enjoyable to hear,” he said.
Ransome does his part to recruit community members to take part in what the Senior Center has to offer.
“I tell people, Why don’t you come down to the Senior Center? You’re sitting here doing nothing. You come down to the Center, you can do something. Talk with other people, shoot pool, whatever,” Ransome said.
