Showcase Shorewood Spotlight - Troy Township Senior ProgramWe are very excited to showcase the Troy Township Senior Program at Troy Township as our next spotlight! Fun fact: this program started in 1986 and is still going strong!

Located at the Troy Township Center in Shorewood (25448 W Seil Road), the Troy Township Senior Program gets together every Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to enjoy socialization, share a nutritious meal with friends, play games, but mostly to have some fun. The activities range from card games, bingo and dominoes, to theme parties and occasional outings. 

The Troy Township services all of Shorewood, areas of Joliet, Crest Hill, Channahon, and Minooka, and the senior program is open to all senior citizens within Troy Township who are 60+ and independent and able to take care of their own needs. More information can be found on the Troy Township website.
