Welcome to The Friendly Community Center,
a place for every adult to Stay Healthy, Keep Fit, and Have Fun!
Something wonderful is happening in our neighborhood, and you’re invited to be a part of it! Our beloved and historic former Friendly Library building has been restored and is ready for another hundred years of service to our community.
The Friendly Community Center is a place to come together with members of your community. Connect with people who share your interests, learn something new, volunteer to help in our community, access social and recreational programs, exercise, play a game, network with friends and business owners, enjoy a cup of coffee, and much more!
Visit our Programs page to learn more about the wide variety of programs we currently offer. With everything from A (Armchair Travel) to Z (Zumba), there’s something for everyone at The FCC!
The Mission of The Friendly Community Center is to provide programs and services to adults, caregivers and families that will help them “Stay Healthy, Keep Fit and Have Fun” by providing opportunities for people of all abilities, from active adults to the frail elderly – as well as our community at large — to participate in social, recreational, health and fitness, arts and humanities, and lifelong learning activities.
