WOODVILLE, WI – In the Fall of 1977, the Woodville Senior Center opened its doors using the American Legion Building.  Within a couple years, the Village Board dedicated the basement of the Pioneer Building to the Woodville Senior Citizens, where it has continued to meet every Mon-Thurs. since. 

Fast-forward and it is time to celebrate the Center’s 40th anniversary.  The Center Board will be hosting a gathering on Tuesday, October 10.  In addition to celebrating the Center’s 40th anniversary, they will be honoring Sharon Fregine and Dena Hudson for 25 years of dedication.  Sharon is the Center’s beloved head cook and does a remarkable job, preparing approximately 110 meals per day.  This includes meals for Woodville, Baldwin, Roberts, and Glenwood City.  Dena is one of the drivers who delivers the meals to the other sites and the area’s homebound.  However, she is known at the Center for much more than that, as she plugs in wherever the need is and can fix just about anything!  Both these gals go above and beyond their call of duty and are a big part of the heart of the center. 

Everyone is invited to stop by for Cake, Coffee, and Punch from 9-11 a.m.  Lunch will be served at noon with dinner music by John Terkelsen.  Our menu that day will be Ham, Cheesy Potatoes, Vegetable, and Dessert.  If staying for lunch, please call the Woodville Senior Center at 715-698-2152 now to reserve your meal.  Seniors 60+ may dine for a suggested donation of just $4.00 per meal.  If under 60, the cost for a meal is $6.50.

The Senior Center is located at 102 Main Street with a ramp entrance in the back of the building. Transportation is available for those in need of a ride for a nominal charge.  Please join us for this special event!
