Welcome to the Roby Adult Center!

 

Recently, our Advisory Council Board voted to decrease the new membership age down to the age of 50 years old.  In the past, the age was set at 55, now you can join the Roby as a new member at the age of 50.  We hope this encourages you to come and experience all that the Roby has to offer. 

 

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 a place you will certainly want to be. 

 

There are so many ways for you to get involved. Several innovative programs have started, with a new DRAWING CLASS (taught by Heather Jones) set to kick off in January of 2024, and a lot more programs have been revamped. We have monthly craft classes (taught by Janis Sensabaugh), our woodshop is open on Monday and Tuesday's from 8a.m. - 3p.m.(instructed by Jimmy Rader), and we have partnered with Greeneville City Schools which allows us to have a computer class on Friday's from 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. (taught by Zavaleta-Castro).

 

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, Monday through Friday, in the Café @ 203), billiards room, tai chi class on Tuesday's (taught by Vel LaRoche), line dancing on Tuesday's (taught by Marilynn Glover), exercise classes on Monday and Thursday's, gentle chair yoga on Wednesday and Friday's (taught by Debbie Overacker), artistic adventures class on Monday's (taught by Tracy Ealey), pottery painting on Wednesday's (taught by Bonnie Hartman), painting class and our new drawing class on Thursday's (taught by Heather Jones), rook, band (Wednesday's at 10:30 a.m.), educational programs, recreational programs, seasonal events, bingo (Tuesday and Thursday's at 10a.m.), 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, along with will and power of attorney assistance from local attorney, Ms. DJ Dalton.

 

If you are on social media, be sure to like our Roby Fitzgerald 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 to participate 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 $20 annually for all city residents and $30 annually for all county residents.

 

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 and enjoy together.

 

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. Welcome to the Roby Family!

 

Sincerely,

Nicole Rader

Roby Adult Center Director
