Bosque Farms Community Center / VCOAP Senior Meal Site
- ADA Accessible
About the Center
The Bosque Farms Community Center was built in 1991 to support the whole Village and was remodeled in 2012. It is available for use by the Community for meetings and other social events for a nominal fee.
The center also has an activity schedule of special events with an emphasis on events for Seniors.
Please take a moment to look over the calendar and upcoming events at the Community Center. Activities change month to month. Evening bands and dance classes are for all ages!
It is true that the Community Center is a senior meal site for the Older American Program, but if you haven't reached that magic number of 60+ to qualify for the lunch program, you may still enjoy many of the other activities.
Letter From the Director
The doors are open!
Change can happen so quickly and often be quite difficult to predict. It can take us unawares or be a time intensive endeavor. A broad spectrum of reactions to it can be observed. Thankfully, as the activities start to resume at the center, overjoyed reactions abound!
A flurry of questions and phone calls fill my days as I try to juggle the schedule to fit in as many activities as possible. Time restrictions and changes in volunteer availability are my biggest challenges.
Nevertheless, many of the activities have been restored and many more are in the works.
Please keep in mind that the center is a COMMUNITY Center, not a senior center. Even though most daytime activities are senior friendly, they are not exclusively senior, other than the VCOAP (Valencia County Older American Program) senior meals, which are for seniors 60+, their spouses and disabled adult children who reside with them. The monthly calendar usually does not show the regularly scheduled children's activities, such as 4-H and Girl Scouts, nor last-minute or impromptu activities, meetings or private parties. Yes, the center is available for rental for meetings, private parties, and even kitchen use with the right permits.

Both of these bands, comprised of local musicians, will give you a chance to put on your boots and scoot around the dance floor! Don’t dance? That’s ok. (See Dance Class above :) It’s (almost) just as much fun to sit and listen, although you might find your foot tapping to the beat of some old favorite country or swing songs!
Enjoy your hamburgers, watermelon and fireworks this weekend! As you do, though, remember what and why we are celebrating. Our independence, our freedom, should not be taken for granted.
The cost is far too high! Thank you to those who have fought and will fight to preserve it!
Questions and suggestions are always welcome! Volunteers are encouraged! 😊
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend! I look forward to seeing you soon!
Rose Poitras, Director
