We’re glad you’re here!
The Social of Greenwood was founded in 1979 as the Greenwood Senior Center. It started with a group that met weekly to enjoy a meal together. Today, The Social of Greenwood has many different regularly scheduled activities. These educational and social programs help improve the quality of life for our members. Our goal is to inform and equip our members with local resources while providing them with a fun, social environment.

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we invite you to join us at The Social to learn about benefits for veterans, their
dependents and their survivors. We will have two retired VA employees sharing information about federal and state Veterans’ benefits.
After retiring from the Air Force, John A. Peters spent over 36 years with the agency before retiring. Vickie Peters, his wife, retired after nearly 39 years with the VA. Both amass a wealth of knowledge focused on the benefits for all Veterans, their dependents as well as their surviving spouses. Our first session will cover an overview of the VA’s benefit programs and some ancillary state benefits. After the presentation, they will be available to talk one-on-one with members to answer specific questions.
The personal mission of John and Vickie mirrors that of the VA motto adapted from a speech by President Abraham Lincoln “To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan.”
