Yes! Our newsletter is available to members only. See membership information in first question.
It is our policy to request that each attendee completes a Participant Registration Form. This helps us apply for additional funding and gives us vital information in case of incident/emergency. If you've never been here before, you can save time by clicking here to complete the Participant Registration Form ahead of time. Feel free to complete it and send it in via mail, email or in person. We would love to give you a tour! Once we have this information you will receive a swipe card that fits on your key chain. You must use this swipe card to register your attendance (check in) on the My-Senior-Center computer each time you are at Encore Experiences.
*Eligible persons, aged 60 and above or disabled, (or the spouse of an eligible person), are requested to make an anonymous voluntary contribution of $2.00 for the daily special. These funds are returned to Montgomery County Aging and Adult Services for redistribution to support nutrition programs throughout Montgomery County. We are able to provide this program with support of: Montgomery County Aging and Adult Services, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, The Connelly Foundation, W.W. Smith Charitable Trust, The VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn, The Patricia Kind Foundation and other corporate and individual donations.
The Café is also open to the entire community and everyone is welcome. The community member price (persons under the age of 60) is $6.95. Other sandwich options are available at reasonable prices. Lunch is served from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM.
Special luncheons are also offered at Encore Experiences throughout the year. These luncheons may be cultural or theme based and require early registration. During special luncheons, The Encore Café is not open to the public.

We partner with TransNET, the Suburban Transit Network of Montgomery County. Some of our participants utilize the Shared Ride Program. This is a reduced fare transportation program for residents of Montgomery County who are age 65 or older. Free transportation to and from Encore Experiences is possible for those who meet the age requirement and attend the Center between the hours of 10:00AM – 2:00PM. Our staff will be happy to make these arrangements. Requests must be made by 12:30PM the day before a ride is needed. Click here to learn more.
