Recreational activities can often be limited for senior citizens. The Sam Corey Senior Center located off of Cedar Street in Delhi Township serves as a place where elders 55 and older can participate in weekly activities that are beneficial to their health, as well as social well-being. The building which was reopened in June 2009, was named after Sam Corey who was instrumental in organizing as well as fundraising for the new structure. In the last seven years the center has became pivotal in community outreach as well as serving tri-county senior residents. Jane Wallin, a representative for the center, knows first-hand about the community involvement as well what goes into the day-to-day operations.
