The City of Groveland has established this all day Senior Center to provide a safe and comfortable place for local seniors to gather, socialize, learn new things, and enjoy each other’s company.
Everyone 55 years young and older is invited to attend the free center.
James Leroy Wyche was principal of Edgewood Elementary School, Groveland's first black school, from 1949 until it closed in 1961. Most of that time, he taught students in fourth through sixth grades on one side of the bottom floor of the tiny wooden schoolhouse on Mills Street. After the school closed, Wyche continued teaching in other Lake County schools before retiring in 1985. To honor the longtime educator, the Lions Center for Senior Citizens was renamed the James L. Wyche Center on November 30, 2007.
