Antioch Senior Center
The Antioch Senior Center is a multi-purpose drop in center open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is located at 817 Holbek Drive, behind the Fire and Rescue Squad Building on Orchard Street. Anyone age 60 and over is welcome to attend. The center is administered by the Village of Antioch. A 13 member Senior Advisory Council, which reflects the views of the entire membership, assists the Director in the management and decision making functions of the Center. Membership dues are $5.00 a year.
A nutritious balanced hot lunch is served at the center Monday and Wednesday at 11:45 a.m. On Thursday and Friday a light meal of soup and/or sandwich is served. The nutrition program is run by senior volunteers who work in the kitchen, serve meals, help with registration and clean-up. The menu is posted at the center. A home-delivered Meals on Wheels program for eligible seniors also operates in Antioch. For more information, call Catholic Charities at 847-546-5733.
Donations & scholarships are made to worthy and needy Antioch community groups and individuals through the Dolly Spiering Memorial Fund. Every evening the Senior Center is being used by nonproft Antioch community groups/organizations for their weekly meetings.
