Mark Your Calendar and Get Your Tickets …

Join our Town-Wide Celebration of Generations for the Jenks Center's Transformation!

Friday, September 11, 5:30 p.m - 7:30 p.m.

Before long, the tent will go up and tables will be assembled for the annual Jenks Center BBQ. Get your tickets and mark your calendars now for Friday, September 11!

This is a special year, so we are holding a special party, as an expression of gratitude, to celebrate everyone’s efforts to get the ReJenks Campaign off to an incredibly successful start and to continue the exciting progress already made in renovating the Jenks Center. Donations, spreading the word about the ReJenks Campaign, cheering us on and last, but certainly not least, your patience through the construction are all making it possible to rebuild the Jenks so that it can better serve you and your fellow Jenks' patrons. Those involved in the ReJenks Campaign are deeply appreciative, and we want to say THANK YOU with a fun-filled evening!

Bring your family and friends -- all are welcome! Enjoy traditional BBQ fare along with side dishes and refreshing drinks, generously provided by Salter Healthcare, followed by scrumptious desserts. Wine and beer will be available for purchase. Let Winchester’s own “Miss Ellaneous” dazzle you with its vast repertoire that ranges from light, dinner music to blue grass and pop. Afterwards, try your luck in a raffle. You may be a winner!

With September being National Senior Center Month, we cannot think of a more fitting time to hold this special event. Please join us in this celebration of gratitude and the Jenks Center's transformation.

Tickets are $15.00 per person (free for children under the age of 10) and are available for purchase at the Jenks Center by check made to “WSA Trust.” Tickets also are available online at
