The Good Times Place Senior Center


The Good Times Place has something to offer to everyone 50 or above. 

We have many fun things happening and are always looking for events and activities to do.   If you haven’t been to a Good Times Place event then give us a try.  You will find a fun environment in which to meet people and develop friendships. 

The Good Times Place flagship is the Monthly Potlucks which have reached legendary status.  There is no better place to eat in Cherokee at noon on the third Thursday of each month than at the GTP Potluck.  Bring a dish, salad or dessert to share and enjoy good conversation, an enjoyable presentation on various topics and maybe even win a door prize.  You may even laugh a little bit!

 The Good Times Place Activities include but not limited to:

  • Painting Group
  • Crafts Group
  • Wood Carving Group
  • 500 Card Group
  • Pinochle Card Group
  • Dinner Theater
  • Card Parties
  • New Years Parties
  • Annual BBQ
  • Day Trips
  • Holiday events
  • And MUCH more



The Good Times Leadership Team meets on the last Thursday of every month at 10:00 in the lower level

of the Community Center.  Everyone is welcome to attend.
