The Arlington Senior Citizens Center opened in the fall of 2003 to serve as a gathering place for Arlington's Senior Citizens. The building is a replica of Arlington's original railroad depot station from the late 1800's known as "Withe Depot". Seniors (ages 50 and over) meet at the center to enjoy each other's company in a variety of ways. Check out the monthly calendars below. Applications are available at the center, Town Hall or you can find it below.
