For Urban Retirement in Your Own Home

Lancaster Downtowners are a welcoming, caring community of seniors
that supports independence, social connection, and learning.

The Lancaster Downtowners Annual Auction is ready for previews! Our auction volunteers have been hard at work and our members, sponsors, and local business have been generous! The auction will go live on August 4th and runs through August 18th.

Funds raised through this annual event support the mission to engage older adults in meaningful opportunities that build a multi-dimensional support network to stay informed, involved, and independent in their community.

Isn't it great when doing good comes with a bonus? Treat yourself and your loved ones to something special on our auction list, and know that you are supporting a vibrant, connected intergenerational community at the same time. 


Now it is time to spread the word! We invite you to explore the auction and share about these marvelous items and experiences with your friends, neighbors, family, community groups, and colleagues.
