Monthly socials
are one of our most popular events to attend. Each social we have a catered meal and live entertainment. In the past we have hosted entertainment such as The Zembo Shrine Band, The Mohler Tappers, Country singer Carol Kline, Milton Hershey's Glee Club the New Horizons, Lower Dauphin's String Quintet, and many more.

Monday Luncheons are what we like to call our "Lunch and Learns," where we serve a homemade lunch and then host a speaker to educate us on their topic. Some past subject matters have included health topics, identity theft discussions, historic topics such as World War Two & Pearl Harbor, caroling music groups from local schools, and much more.

How can I find out about inclement weather closings and delays?
Unfortunately, we are unable to post last minute closing or delay information on our website. The best way to get updates on closings or delays is to check ABC 27, WGAL 8, and WHP 21 (television or website). You may also call the center (717-533-2002) and listen to our voicemail for updates. We have different policies than the local schools, so please look for Mohler Senior Center information specifically. 

What are other useful resources for seniors in the greater Hershey area?
There are various organizations such as American Red Cross, Dauphin County AAA, Social Security, and many more that we believe can help inform our members and provide additional resources outside of the Mohler Center. These organizations provide diverse opportunities, important information, specialized help, and unique services.
