About Thompson Community Center

The Thompson Community Center (TCC) is a program of Lutheran Social Services that promotes positive aging and enhanced quality of life through collaborative proactive programs and services for a diverse community of older adults and their families. With over 60 services and activities, TCC provides social, recreational, health and fitness, arts, transportation, foot care, counseling, development of new skills and interests, nutrition, companionship, connection with the community and countless other benefits.

Whether you’re learning a new skill, participating in an activity you love or always wanted to try, staying fit through an exercise class, exercising your mind with a fun social activity, attending a support group or volunteering in a meaningful way, there is something at the Thompson Community Center for everyone.

Many times you cannot predict when you’ll suddenly find yourself caring for an aging parent or spouse, grieving the loss of a loved one, dealing with a dramatic change in health, coping with memory loss, or trying to rediscover yourself after retirement. TCC staff is here to provide support no matter where you are on your personal journey.

From May through October participants can also enjoy the infamous “Grampa’s Grill” every Thursday, featuring charcoal grilled sandwiches and other treats!

We have no membership requirements or monthly fees. A small fee is required when participating in a service or activity. These affordable fees are made possible through diverse funding sources including rental of the TCC Facility.

Whether you represent a business or a community organization such as a church, school, museum, city government, etc., we invite you to create an account and get a free listing in our online business directory. There is no charge to create an account and it only takes a few moments of your time.

If you'd like additional exposure for your business or organization, we offer all kinds of options to fit your needs and budget. Do you want to bring more people in to your establishment? Why not consider a coupon or a promotional event? If you just need to keep yourself in the public eye you might want to think about placing an eye-catching full-color ad. You can choose your medium: the website, the mobile app, the weekly newsletter, our popular wall calendar, or any combination of the four.

Did you know that independent studies by the Verafast Corporation repeatedly show that at least 70% of all homeowners who receive our calendar keep and use it all year long? That's a phenomenal retention rate and makes sure that your business or organization is truly being put On Display Every Day.

With your account you'll also have the opportunity to post events that will appear on our website, in our weekly newsletter, and on our mobile app. Please remember that Town Planner is a franchise and all events are subject to approval by the local publisher in your area. As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
