senior citizens holding hand made wreaths As we are enjoying the warm weather and beautiful days, Mt. Pleasant Community Center’s Seniors-N-Action decided to spring forth by designing their very own spring wreaths. We are delighted to showcase the creativity and authenticity of our seniors. Mrs. Linda Mahaffey volunteered her time to come out and help our seniors design their wreaths. Mrs. Mahaffey has been making wreath for more than 30 years. We appreciate her time and kindness for assisting our seniors. Thank you, and we look forward to your visit!

History

In 1957 Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church purchased 2.3 acres on E. Fairfield Road. Under the direction of several community volunteers a government orchestrated program, CEDAR, was brought to the site in the mid 1960’s and programs for baseball, basketball, and football were offered. In 1973 Greenville County Recreation District entered into a 99 year lease for the property and the former Rosenwall School. Reverend Earl Lewers was hired as the first center coordinator. In 1983 the old school building was torn down and a new facility was built. The Recreation District subsequently purchased adjacent property on the corner of Fairfield Road and White Horse Road and in 1994 a gymnasium / activities center was constructed. The former center was dedicated as the George W. Walker Senior Center. Since then a walking trail and picnic shelter have been added.
