Fleming-Neon Senior Citizens Center News
Our center is having a canned food drive and a coat drive for seniors who are in need. Donations of canned goods and/or coats may be dropped off at the center during our regular hours of operation (listed below).

The community center is maintained by the community. We will not shut down. We had the community center in the ole school building 15 years before the Fleming-Neon Senior Program moved to our site. The senior program was maintained by the county. Sadly, the Letcher County Fiscal Court is closing the senior program which met at our site Mon-Friday during the daytime.
