While our staff members at Fair Park Senior Center each work together to build a strong network of care and support, we rely on our dedicated volunteers to help us maintain the positive and fun atmosphere we have created. 

Whether you have a passion that you’d like to bring to Fair Park Senior Center or a skill that can be used to benefit the lives of our members, we’d like to hear from you. We will have a volunteer get-together in January for all of our new and existing volunteers to review some new volunteer opportunities and to hear new ideas. 

To become a volunteer, please call or email Alicia at fpscalicia@outlook.com or 931-484-7416.

Every year Ruth Lucas does an outstanding job coordinating the Lucas & Friends Christmas Variety Show, one of our fundraisers. If you have never attended, you will not want to miss this year’s show set for Dec. 21. There will be two show times to choose from. 

There will be a full cast of talented singers performing our favorite Christmas tunes, comedy acts and the true reason for the season. This show sells out quickly. Come by Fair Park Senior Center to purchase tickets. All proceeds will help fund Fair Park Senior Center.

A group of women from our line dancing class volunteered to decorate one of our Christmas trees. This tree is displayed in our front lobby and is absolutely beautiful! Thank you, ladies, for your time and heart that you have put into this. We love it!
