Tuckahoe Senior Citizens is an active vital community made up of men and women, 55 years of age and older, who gather Tuesdays and Thursdays from September through July at Fr. Fata Hall at the Assumption Church in Tuckahoe, NY. Members enjoy a wide range of activities including weekly exercise, Tai Chi, Bingo, cards and games, as well as presentations on topics of particular interest: health, legal issues, history, music, culture, food, crafts, politics, art, literature, film, dancing and more.
All of these programs are included in the $20 yearly membership fee. Seniors also enjoy monthly luncheons and day trips for an additional fee. The Annual Bazaar, held in the fall, is an important fund-raiser and community event for the organization and its members.
Operating in Westchester County for almost 45 years, the center primarily serves those residents in the 10707, 10708, and 10709 zip codes. However, membership is open to all who consider Tuckahoe and Eastchester their community, including some who live nearby in adjacent areas of Yonkers, Mount Vernon, and Scarsdale.
Referrals to important services for older adults are provided by a professional director, who has a growing list of trusted partners around southern Westchester, who can help our member's age in place where appropriate, as well as discussing other needs as necessary.
The Tuckahoe Senior Center's operations are overseen by the Senior Citizens Council, a community-based organization established in 1970 to provide professionally run programs and services for elderly residents of Eastchester, Tuckahoe and Bronxville.
