The mission of the Center is to help older adults live vibrant independent lives. We are open five days a week and offer social engagement, education, outreach and volunteer work for adults 55 and over in our community.
The Center was a vision brought to life by Annie and Hank Spaulding in 1990. They were longtime residents and business owners in Kennebunk and noticed that as their parents were aging they were becoming more isolated from the community. Driving was a problem, their world was getting smaller and smaller, and that was devastating for Annie and Hank to watch.
In 1990 the Center opened its doors and membership quickly grew to two hundred residents from all economic backgrounds. It was evident they enjoyed the camaraderie they found at the Senior Center. In 1995 the Center became self-sustaining through memberships, donations, fundraisers, business sponsorships, small budget allowances from Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, and an endowment created by many donors.
Today the Center has more than 400 members, some coming from as far away as Sanford, Biddeford, and Old Orchard Beach to enjoy the atmosphere and services offered. On any given day you’ll find members involved in various activities such as yoga or fitness classes, learning a new skill, kibitzing with friends over a game of Bridge or Mah Jong, or enjoying a luncheon. The sound of laughter wafts through the rooms. This is their home away from home, their place to go to meet friends and make new ones.
