McWherter Senior Center

McWherter Senior Center is a City of Memphis, Division of Park and Neighborhoods facility that provides activities and services to senior 55+ years of age. We have a volunteer Advisory Council that assists in the success of the center. Through the advisory council participants can become members of the center for $12 a year. Membership gives individuals the opportunity purchase lunch for $4, entrance to the dance on Thursday night $5 and get mailed a copy of our monthly newsletter. Non-members/guests pay $5 for lunch, $6 for the dance and they do not have a vote or opportunity to serve on the council.

McWherter Center prepares and serves lunch Monday-Friday 11:30-12:30. The last Tuesday of each month we recognize our members that have a Birthday that month with a free lunch, entertainment and Birthday cake.
