The Hub On Smith

Community Spotlight

We love being neighbors with The Hub, not only do they have the best job titles (They have a Director of Fun!), they are continually doing awesome things for all generations of Sheridan. For over 40 years, the Hub has been identifying and meeting the various needs that older adults have throughout Sheridan County. Last year they served over 4,800 individuals, more than any other Wyoming senior center. The Sheridan County community is quickly growing as a popular retirement community and has a larger older adult population than many locations throughout the state.
