Bloomfield Recreation Senior Citizens
The Bloomfield Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Department is excited to provide recreation programming and transportation services to our senior citizen residents. We look forward to bringing back monthly Senior Citizen Club meetings, holiday gatherings, guest speakers, guest entertainers, casino bus trips and entertainment excursions.
Senior Organization Club: 2022-2023 was a successful year for our Senior Organization Club. With over 100 members we returned to having our monthly meetings, went on trips and had an end of the year celebration outside in the courtyard. We will be returning this fall and meeting once a month at the Bloomfield Civic Center. Yearly Membership dues are $20 and will be good until September 2024. Membership allows you to receive discounts on seasonal programming as well as free entry to our holiday celebrations.
