In the spring of 1968, Amelia McCalla donated the building on the corner of Franklin Avenue and Hall Street for the purpose of the Senior Citizens and Youth Groups to have a meeting place. The building was donated in memory of Amelia McCalla’s Mother, Martha G. Lewis. Thus, the first Senior Citizen Center began.
In 1980, the old Clinic on East Hall and Fajardo St, next to the library, was offered to the Hatch Senior Citizen’s for their use. The building required an enormous renovation. Through money received by grants, funds from the Village of Hatch and various donations the building was remodeled. In 1983 the building was completed and ready for use.
There are various activities going on at the Senior Center. The Hatch Coffee Club meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Every 3rd Friday of the month, there is a Hatch Senior Citizen’s Luncheon at 12:00 pm. The VFW meets the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm. During the week many of our local seniors meet to play cards and dominoes.
The Senior Citizen Center is also open to rent when not in use by the seniors. The Senior Citizen’s Center is located at 510 E. Hall St. next to the Hatch Public Library. For more information call Lisa Neal, the director of the Senior Center and Library at 575-267-5132.Senior Citizen Center
