The Branson Parks & Recreation Department is encouraging community members to participate in its Adopt-A-Senior program to spread joy to local senior citizens who may not otherwise receive much during the Christmas Season. This program is in coordination with the Senior Age Area Agency on Aging and is designed to provide gifts, encouragements and well-wishes to Branson area senior citizens.

If you are interested in adopting a senior this holiday season, wish lists will be available for pick-up at the Branson Community Center and Branson RecPlex beginning Monday, November 16, 2020.  You can also request a wish list by emailing Community Center Coordinator Traci Burrow at tburro[email protected].

Christmas wish and needs lists are distributed to local seniors through area care facilities, the Branson Community Center and the Senior Age home meal delivery program. Lists are then returned to the Branson Community Center for distribution to those interested in adopting a senior.

Wish lists and gifts for Adopt-A-Senior should be returned to the Branson RecPlex or Branson Community Center no later than Wednesday, December 9, 2020.

For more information regarding upcoming events at the Branson Community Center, call 417-337-8510 or visit the Branson Parks & Recreation website.
