Welcome to the Roby Adult Center!

 

As a member of the Roby Adult Center, we look forward to serving you in many ways. Below you will find this month’s calendar of activities. By participating in these activities, you will become familiar with other members and the programs that make our Center special.

 

There are so many ways for you to get involved. I am working on several new programs for the center, such as offering devotion the first Wednesday of each month, starting at 10:00 a.m., a basket weaving class, and in March, I am hoping we can start offering pottery painting classes as well.  I am also working with the Greeneville City Schools Technology Department, to get the computer lab back up and running. I am super excited to announce that we have just re-opened the woodshop, we are also starting our quilting class back up, and starting in February, we will be having monthly craft classes. Our crafts instructor, Janis, looks forward to starting these craft classes back up, as she has a lot of fun crafts planned for any member.

 

In addition to these fun activities, we also offer a fitness room (open Monday through Friday 8a-4p), lunch for all members (suggested donations of $3 per meal, at 11a.m. Monday through Friday, in the Café @ 203 room), billiards room, tai chi class (taught by Vel LaRoche), line dancing (taught by Marilynn Glover), exercise classes and gentle chair yoga (taught by Debbie Overacker), art classes, rook, band, educational programs, recreational programs, seasonal events, bingo, and we are planning regional trips throughout the upcoming year.  The Center offers an onsite notary for all members, and we house the Meals on Wheels Program, the MyRide Program, Medicare assistance, Greeneville/Greene County Options Counselor, and Will assistance from a local attorney.

 

If you are on social media, be sure to like our Roby Adult Center page. You can find detailed information under the Town of Greeneville website greenevilletn.gov by clicking on departments, then on Roby Adult Center. Here you will find the monthly calendar and staffing information.

 

Lastly, once you become a member, you will receive a membership card. This card allows you to swipe in each time you enter the building. By swiping in each time you come into the building, this will help us maintain an accurate count of our membership activity numbers. Once you swipe your card, a list of activities will appear, all you have to do is tap on “attendance” first, then any other activity you plan on participating in that day (Ex: if you plan to play BINGO, click on bingo), then click done.  This will check you in successfully. If you do not have your card with you, no worries, all you must do is enter your phone number, area code first. If you have questions, please let us know and we will be happy to help you. And just a friendly reminder, membership dues are $10 yearly.

 

Our focus here at the Roby Center is for our members to have fun! We want the Roby to feel like your home away from home. I know that life gets busy, but I personally hope you will make time each week to come to the Roby and enjoy some fun and fellowship with other members in all the different activities, programs, and outings that we offer.

 

My door is always open, please come see me with any questions or comments you may have. We look forward to having you here at the Roby. We hope you will come join us soon!

 

Sincerely,

Nicole Rader

Roby Adult Center Director
