The Seguin Silver Center is a non-profit organization. It began with the mission of offering area senior citizens a place to go and visit with other area residents.

That mission still stands. Only during its tenure, it has expanded.

The center offers various activities for its member and nonmembers to participate in from Tai Chi classes to Mahjong game days. Each Friday night, a local band takes the stage to perform classic and current tunes for guests to dance to. And The Silver Opry features a night of several local artists playing with the house band.

Each day the Silver Center cooks up a hearty lunch that not only members, but the community can come in to enjoy for a reasonable price.

It also serves as a meeting place for several non-profit organizations and businesses, and the community in general.

The toughest part for the Silver Center’s board is finding funding. The local organization receives no assistance from sources outside it’s fundraising dances, dinners, rentals and the upcoming Taste of Seguin.

A place like the Silver Center is imperative for any community to have. Seguin is lucky that we have this one and the incredible board and staff that do what they can with as little as they receive.

It is an important part of this community and worth spending a couple of hours tasting local cuisine in support of it.
