FiftyForward finalizes plan to assume operations of the City of La Vergne Senior Center Effective May 1

FiftyForward, a leading resource for adults 50+ in Middle Tennessee,  and the City of La Vergne Parks & Recreation Department have finalized plans to transfer the operations of the existing Senior Center, located at 337 Stones River Road in La Vergne, TN, to FiftyForward. The agency currently operates seven lifelong learning centers across Davidson and Williamson counties. The transition is effective on May 1, 2024.

“We are thrilled to extend our programs and services to older adults in La Vergne, TN, and are genuinely excited to be in Rutherford County,” says Sallie Hussey, FiftyForward CEO. “This expansion is not just about growth but about ensuring Middle Tennessee’s growing population of older adults can live longer, more fulfilling lives.”

“Through this partnership with FiftyForward we will be able to provide a higher quality senior center,” says Mayor Jason Cole. “We love our seniors and think this partnership will not only improve their quality of life, but the lives of any other potential members looking to make connections and keep an active lifestyle.”

The goal of the transition is to provide opportunities for older adults to engage in community and find meaningful, engaging activities to reduce isolation. Programs will include exercise, art, day trips and educational activities.

“As we get started in May, the center will be open three days a week as we hire staff and will work toward a full five-day schedule,” says Hussey.
