Welcome to the new Center At The Park! We’re excited you found us and eagerly wait to meet you at the new center!
Our new, 13,800 square foot facility opened its doors May 2012 and lies within the newly constructed Julius M. Kleiner Park in Meridian and was made possible with a building and land donation from the Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Trust.
As part of the Meridian community for more than 50 years, the members own and operate the center as a non-profit organization. Our mission is dedicated to enriching the lives of all seniors by developing, providing and promoting a climate of respect, trust and support. Our organization offers education, recreation, information and assistance to seniors, and encourages volunteering and opportunities for life enhancement programs.
Ed Whalin - President

Build the Brick Road to Center at the Park
Members of the Meridian Senior Center are asking for the community’s support in their latest fund-raising effort to provide furnishings for the interior of the new senior center which opened May of 2012.
To provide funding for the new center, a brick purchasing campaign is currently being offered to individuals and businesses. According to Walt Calkins, Board President of the center, “the bricks that are purchased, will be featured along the back patio of the new center.”
He said purchasing a brick makes a great gift or an award to recognize a family member, co-worker or friend. “Bricks can be purchased for loved ones as a living tribute or memorial or for special or commemorative events,” she said. “Many individuals and businesses are purchasing them as well to highlight personal or business achievements.”
A 4 X 8 inch personalized brick with three lines of inscription costs $100. “We also offer a replica brick used for displaying for an additional $50,” he said. Larger 8 X 8 inches bricks sell for $250 and those wanting to add a logo to their 8 X 8 brick pay $450.
To order a brick or obtain a brochure with ordering information, view printable online brochure or contact Cindy Hill, Center Director at PO Box 606, Meridian, ID 83680 or phone 888-5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The senior center has given me a way to help others. Every day it makes a difference in my life.
It is such an enjoyment in my life. I miss the center when they are closed.”
