Queensbury Seniors

About Us

Queensbury Senior Citizens, Inc. (QSC) is a local nonprofit that is dedicated to promoting aging well in the Adirondacks. We offer a variety of activities and programs to our members aged 55 and older that focus on social interaction, educational growth, physical activity and giving back to our community through charitable support. We currently have over 1000 members in Warren, Washington and Northern Saratoga counties, with the majority residing in Queensbury and Lake George, the foothills of the Adirondack Park.

Our History

Realizing the need for programs and services for senior citizens in the town of Queensbury, citizen Arthur Turnbull in January of 1980 successfully persuaded the Queensbury town board to form a senior citizens committee. On March 7, 1980 a group of more than 100 like-minded seniors met at the Queensbury town hall to elect the first slate of officers with Turnbull as President, and on March 17, 1980 the group’s first monthly meeting was held at the Mohican Grange Hall. Two months later on April 28, 1980 a Certificate of Incorporation was filed and Queensbury Senior Citizens Inc. (QSC) was born.
