About The Pioneer Center

2020 was a year of many changes and challenges.  How we operate going forward will now be a new normal.  After being closed for over a year, we are happy to have the Pioneer Center back open.  Even though we did not get to celebrate in April of 2020, Pioneer Center did pass a milestone first of 30 years of service to the citizens of Weatherford and many other surrounding areas.  The Pioneer Center opened its doors on April 29th, 1990 with a Grand Opening, which welcomed over 1,200 guests.  The Pioneer Center continues to be a well-known and established Senior Citizens Center and a Community Center for the City of Weatherford.  The 12,000 square foot facility, one of the largest and finest of its kind in Western Oklahoma, hosts thousands of people each month for various events and activities.  We hope to return to that.

The Pioneer Center provides many activities for all ages. For our seniors, the Pioneer Center provides arts and crafts, movies, music, local speakers, games, exercise programs, health services, social events, and special holiday celebrations.  The seniors also take monthly day trips and have fun evenings out to local attractions, events, and restaurants.  Most Tuesdays, we have local informational speakers who come and talk with our seniors before lunch, such as, our own Weatherford Mayor, Chief of Police, Fire Chief, and many others from local organizations or businesses in the City of Weatherford.  A monthly newsletter provides events & activities which are held at the center.  Newsletters can be found by clicking the Newsletter tab above, or you are welcome to pick one up at the beginning of each month at the Pioneer Center office.

The Pioneer Center is home to the CADC Weatherford Nutrition Program, which provides a daily lunch at 11:45 a.m. for seniors Monday – Friday at a suggested donation of $3.00 for those 60 plus and $7.00 for those under 60.  Menus are found by clicking the monthly Menu tab above or it can be found in the monthly newsletter.  To join us for lunch, please contact the Nutrition office no later than 9:00 a.m. on the day you would like to dine.  A homebound meal program is also available to those that qualify from the Nutrition Program.  To participate in either program, please call the Nutrition office at 580-772-1193.

The Pioneer Center is fortunate to have a small 15 passenger bus with a lift.   We can pick up folks for the lunch-time Nutrition Program, Monday – Friday.  We also use the bus for our senior trips and events from the center.  Reservations are required for bus rides and there is a nominal fee.  Please call the Pioneer Center office, at 580-772-1191, for reservations or questions concerning any bus trips or fees.

The best kept secret at the Pioneer Center is that it is available to rent for private groups or businesses for banquets, reunions, birthday parties, anniversaries, showers, business meetings, craft shows, fundraisers, square dances, dance recitals, pageants, and so much more.  The building is handicap accessible with 3 exits that have automatic doors.  We have several accommodating rooms of various sizes and prices.  We offer extras such as a small stage, sound system with CD player or jacks for I-Pod, remote projector, drop-down projection screen, 65-inch smart TV with DVD player, piano, tables (several different sizes and shapes), chairs, and ice machine.  Our parlor offers a 64-inch flat screen TV, which is great for viewing movies or hosting small meetings.  Rental rates are very affordable and competitive for this area.  The high quality of the facility makes it a great rental choice for any occasion or event.  The center has an experienced event planner, Cheryl Burleigh, on staff to help with your next event.  For more information on bookings or planning your next event, you can call the Pioneer Center between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday at 580-774-4588.
