The Village of Antioch will temporarily close the Antioch Senior Center from May 2nd -June 6th for repairs and upgrades. Throughout the temporary closing, Antioch Township will continue Senior Center events at the Antioch Township building located at 1625 N. Deep Lake Road, Lake Villa.

The Senior Center will re-open on June 7th, with a special event. More information about the event will be shared in the coming weeks. An updated schedule of events and programs that will be run both at the Senior Center and the Antioch Township building will be provided to ensure a smooth transition of services.

Moving forward, Antioch Township will take over all of senior services for Antioch. Antioch Township has been working on a revised senior program schedule that combines and includes the long-standing programs and activities that have been a staple at the Antioch Senior Center as well as the robust programs, trips, and events Antioch Township has created and grown throughout the years.

If you have questions, concerns, suggestions, or would like to volunteer for senior events, please contact Antioch Township at 847-395-3378.

If you have questions about using the Senior Center for other programs and activities that are not senior focused, i.e., special interest groups, community groups, HOA meetings, and other gatherings, please contact Mary Quilty, Village Director of Parks and Recreation at 847-395-1000 x1404.

We are here to support our growing population of seniors and are excited to work together for better programming, support, and resources for all of our seniors.

With respect,
Tom Shaughnessy, Antioch Supervisor
Scott Gartner, Mayor of Antioch
