The Bob and Wanda Meyer Senior and Community Center is focused as a place where seniors can socialize and enhance quality of life. The facility will offer a variety of both passive and active programs and activities including fitness classes, bridge, dominoes, Mah Jongg, educational presentations and art classes.

At the heart of the center’s mission is the namesakes’ family. After his beloved wife Wanda passed away, Bob would come to the Southwood Community Center daily for a cup of coffee and visit. Periodically, he would participate in the programs offered; but more than anything, he craved the social benefit. For this reason, the lobby will be filled with cozy furniture and coffee, allowing patrons to come together for a chat.
