Clinton County Community Action has a wide variety of senior services that we operate out of our senior center. We have been in the new center since 2001 at 717 N Nelson Avenue, Wilmington, Oh. The center is a perfect location for seniors to spend time doing a multitude of activities. They can even stay an entire day, as the center operates a kitchen to provide meals to the seniors.
Congregate dining is offered daily at the center at 11:30 am for a suggested donation of $2.00. This is a Title III lunch program that provides 1/3 of the recommended daily nutrition requirements of older adults. Reservations are required in advance for this service. Ala carte lunch items are also available at a reasonable cost.
