About Belton Senior Activity Center
In 1976 a group of area seniors began meeting on a weekly basis at local churches to share in activities. Over the years, this fellowship effort grew into what is today the Belton Senior Activity Center. Many years with many changes and improvements has created the warm and welcoming atmosphere found at this Center. In the mid 1980's funds were accumulated to build the current facility. For the next 20-25 years the seniors kept the Center going thru fundraisers and generous donations. But with age came difficulties in continuing the upkeep on the building. After years of pleading for help from the community, Center Director Elaine Murray and the Center members finally received the help that they needed to keep the Center alive. It was at this point that a group of individuals with a caring heart began the process of creating the Belton Area Citizens for Seniors, Inc. and obtaining title to the property. In 2009 this process was completed and the BACFS began making many much needed improvements.
