About Us

A little about our Center!  The 55+ Activity Center is non-profit organization established under the laws of the State of Oklahoma.  The general purposes are to provide facilities and programs for the qualified people of Bartlesville and the surrounding area to enter into activities that will enhance their physical and mental well being and encourage good fellowship among the participants.  

State or Federal government does NOT fund the Center.  We operate from Membership Dues and Private Donations.  The Center operates on donations from anyone.  Therefore, we do accept donations at any activities and we encourage members to contribute.  Members are 55+ years old. Dues are only $84.00 per year, per person, from March 1st to March 1st the next year, prorated for new members only.  Guests may attend 3 sessions before joining the center. We are normally open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily, Monday through Friday.  Saturday, we're open from 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon.  We do not allow alcoholic beverages, smoking or the use of inappropriate Ianguage inside the building.
