WOODVILLE, WI – The Woodville Senior Center received a check for $500 from the Woodville Lions towards the purchase of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). 

An AED is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm.  AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest and can more than double the chances of survival.

The Woodville Center operates its programming and services on a meager budget and does not have funds to purchase an AED on its own.  It is the only senior center in St. Croix County without an AED in its facility.  We greatly appreciate the large financial contribution from the Woodville Lions towards this purchase. 

A big part of the purpose of the Woodville Senior Center is to offer a delicious home cooked meal to anyone 60+ for a suggested donation of just $4.00 per meal.  We also offer a variety of activities such as bingo, dominoes, field trips, entertainment, and informative talks.  The Center is open from 8:30-1:30 Monday-Thursday. 

We invite you to come and check us out and if wishing to join us for dinner, please call 24 hours in advance to reserve your meal at 715-698-2152.
